Senators vow to back NASA, Huntsville Times
"Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Bud Cramer, D-Huntsville, said Tuesday that he is frustrated with NASA's plans to shut down the lunar robotics office. "We've fought for the NASA budget at the highest levels," Cramer told the chamber leaders. "Now, to hear from headquarters that they want to unplug the lunar robotics office at Marshall is awfully frustrating."
Editor's note: Perhaps Rep. Cramer should look into the details of the rising cost of all that the robotics folks wanted to do at MSFC - and the role that played in this decision. Then again, more money equals more jobs - regardless of where the money comes from - and its Cramer's job to bring home the bacon.
