Alabama Hates Norm

Alabama lawmakers in Washington blast Augustine panel report, Huntsville Times

"U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Hallville, said the report provide no safety data that would help the White House or leaders in Congress to guide the future of NASA. U.S. Rep. Parker Griffith, D-Huntsville, said the report was incomplete, ill-conceived and would delay NASA's progress. U.S Sen. Richard Shelby said the report does not address safety concerns that could come about from extending the space shuttle past its planned 2010 retirement date and using the International Space Station as it ages. U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Mobile, said if the Obama administration is serious about space and NASA it will make sure the extra $3 billion a year the Augustine panel said NASA needs is in the federal budget."
