The Budget Game Continues

21 September 2004: Senate Appropriations Committee Approves Fiscal Year 2005 VA/HUD Appropriations Bill

"National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA): is funded at $16.379 billion, an increase of $200 million over the FY04 enacted level, and a reduction of $665 million from the budget request. An additional $800 million in emergency funding was added for NASA during the Committee's consideration of the bill."

10 September 2004: H Rpt 108-674 - VA/HUD Subcommittee's report on HR 5041

"The [House Appropriations] Committee has recommended a total program level of $15,149,369,000 in fiscal year 2005, which is a decrease of $1,094,631,000 from the budget request and a decrease of $228,663,000 when compared to the fiscal year 2004 enacted appropriation."

16 September 2004: Life Sciences Center ceremony set at MU, Columbia Tribune

16 September 2004: NASA Faces Final Budget Debate, UPI

"If NASA's battle over its fiscal year 2005 budget were a baseball game, it now would be in bottom of the eighth inning with score tied -- and Congress at bat."

Editor's note: An article in the 11 September edition of CQ Weekly, "VA-HUD Bill Drafted With Controversy" talks about Senate appropriators designating $1.2B for veteran's medical care as "emergency spending" and not subject to the cap on the overall VA, HUD appropriations bill. This will give lawmakers more flexibility to increase funding (should they so desire) for other accounts in VA-HUD, including NASA and EPA. House Appropriations Chairman Walsh (R-NY) applauded the Senate's emergency designation.
