Attempt to Cut NASA Budget Foiled

Senate rejects raid on NASA budget, Houston Chronicle

"The Senate fended off an effort Tuesday to raid $150 million from NASA's budget, rejecting a Republican senator's effort to shift funds to a program that reimburses Texas and other states for incarcerating illegal immigrants. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and other NASA defenders argued vigorously that the space agency already is suffering from inadequate budgets and that its missions would be compromised if the cuts were enacted."
