House passes NASA budget
Posted: Sat, Jun 6, 2015, 11:18 AM ET (1518 GMT)
US Capitol The US House of Representatives approved Wednesday an appropriations bill that provides $18.5 billion for NASA in fiscal year 2016, but transfer funds among agency programs when compared to the administration's request. The bill, passed on a largely party-line vote after two days of date, provides the same overall funding that the White House requested. However, the bill reduces funding for Earth science, commercial crew, and space technology, and increases funding for the Space Launch System and planetary science, including a mission to Jupiter's moon Europa. The White House has threatened to veto the overall bill because of a number of its provisions, including the cuts in NASA programs. The Senate is expected to start work on its version of a NASA spending bill the week of June 8.
