OMB on NASA

Statement of Administration Policy H.J. Res. 20 Making Continuing Appropriations for the fiscal year 2007 (Sponsor: Obey (D) Wisconsin), OMB

"National Aeronautics and Space Administration: In reducing NASA's overall budget by $528 million from the President's 2007 request, the House also specified funding levels for NASA programs within NASA's appropriation accounts, reducing funds for exploration by $577 million below the President's request, while funding other programs in the same account at levels substantially above the request. This unbalanced allocation could jeopardize NASA's ability to develop new exploration capabilities in a timely manner. The Administration strongly urges the Senate to provide NASA with the flexibility it needs to achieve the goals and timeline of the Vision for Space Exploration, while maintaining balanced programs in space science, Earth science, and aeronautics."

Editor's note:The fact that NASA made it into the SAPdemonstrates some committment from the White House to ensuring funding for the Vision. However, the language "The Administration strongly urges the Senate to provide NASA with the flexibility it needs to achieve the goals and timeline of the Vision for Space Exploration, while maintaining balanced programs in space science, Earth science, and aeronautics." is so limp that it conveys virtually no seriousness of purpose.
