More Money for NASA?

Funding NASA will boost economy, U.S. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas, Orlando Sentinel

"Last week, details of the economic recovery package were made public. The initial plan calls for $600 million for NASA's science and aeronautics programs, as well as funding to repair some of the damage caused by natural disasters in 2008. While I applaud this much-needed infusion of funds, I believe it does not go far enough, especially in light of funding shortfalls caused by flat budgets in recent years. That is why I sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House leadership urging an additional $2 billion in the economic stimulus for NASA's exploration systems and space operations. We would be remiss to leave out funding for human space exploration from this recovery package."
