US Capitol The House Appropriations Committee approved a spending bill Wednesday that would give NASA $16.6 billion in the next fiscal year. The Commerce, Justice, and Science (CJS) appropriations bill would fund NASA at that level, $1.1 billion below the administration's request, for fiscal year 2014, which starts on October 1 of this year. The budget would fund NASA's Space Launch System and Orion programs at slightly above the administration's request, and offer more money for the agency's planetary science program than the administration requested. The budget, though, would cut funding for other programs, including space technology and commercial crew development. The Senate is developing its own appropriations bill that would fund NASA at $18 billion for 2014.
