House Committee on Science and Technology Chairmen: President's Lack of Willingness to Discuss NASA Budget 'Deeply Disappointing'

"We are deeply disappointed that the President has decided not to seize the opportunity to meet with Members of Congress to discuss how best to ensure that NASA will have the resources needed to carry out a balanced and robust program of science, aeronautics, and human space flight and exploration initiatives.""We intend to work with NASA supporters on both sides of the aisle in Congress to try to give NASA the resources it will need to carry out the tasks that the nation has asked it to undertake. However, the President's disengagement will make that effort immeasurably more difficult."
