More NASA Budget Ups and Downs

9 September 2004: A vision for the ages, OpEd, Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Washington Times

"Today, members of a key Senate Appropriations subcommittee are poised to slash NASA's budget and undermine President Bush's historic vision for space exploration. Such a move could have devastating consequences for the future of America's technology workforce and squander a tremendous opportunity to create new, good-paying jobs in high-tech industries."

9 September 2004: More relief needed, editorial, Orlando Sentinel

"NASA, its budget already stretched by underfunding and last year's loss of the shuttle Columbia, also will need additional dollars. The Kennedy Space Center suffered its worst damage ever from Frances. The destruction could set back plans to resume shuttle flights in the spring. The sooner Congress comes up with a new round of disaster relief that meets these and other needs, the sooner Florida will recover."

9 September 2004: Space Plan Takes A Tiny Step, UPI

"Rep. James Walsh, R-N.Y., chair of the House subcommittee that oversees the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, has agreed to accept a restructuring of the agency's operating plan that frees up $75 million in unspent fiscal year 2004 money. The funds now can be used for the contracts, and other elements of the new space plan announced by President George W. Bush last January."
