Witnesses Advocate Stable Funding and Adequate Resources For NASA

"I am deeply concerned about the fate of our human space flight program, one of the agency's most recognizable missions," said Subcommittee Ranking Member Pete Olson (R-TX) in prepared remarks.

Kosmas and Posey had previously sent a letter to the Appropriations Committee urging them to reverse the cuts and maintain a robust human spaceflight program."
