Budget Update: No Additional Money For NASA

Fiscal Year 2007 Joint Funding Resolution, Senate Appropriations Committee, 14 Feb 2007:

"NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION (NASA) The Appropriations Committee does not provide additional funding for NASA. However, unlike the base CR, specific funding levels for NASA sub-accounts are designated."

Mikulski: CR was the Best We Could Do

"While I would have liked to have increased funding for NASA, there was simply not enough extra funding available for us to do so. Within the limits of NASA's FY 06 operating plan, we added an extra $460 million to exploration while protecting other critical NASA programs in science and aeronautics. With only seven months left in this fiscal year, I believe NASA will be able to manage their programs in exploration with minimal impact to the overall schedule."

H.J.RES.20 Revised Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2007 (Enrolled as Agreed to or Passed by Both House and Senate)

`Sec. 20915. Notwithstanding section 101, the level for the following accounts of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration shall be as follows: `Science, Aeronautics and Exploration', $10,075,000,000, of which $5,251,200,000 shall be for science, $890,400,000 shall be for aeronautics research, $3,401,600,000 shall be for exploration systems, and $531,800,000 shall be for cross-agency support programs; `Exploration Capabilities', $6,140,000,000; and `Office of Inspector General', $32,000,000.
