Hints of NASA's FY 2011 Budget

Draft Spending Bill Increases NASA's Budget by $186M over 2010, Space News

"The draft resolution also includes $1.2 billion for Lockheed Martin's Orion crew capsule, $100 million more than called for in the Senate appropriations measure and the new authorization act. The draft language also includes a passage that would allow NASA to cancel the Ares family of rockets Obama targeted for termination in his 2011 spending proposal and to initiate new programs, a key hurdle the agency has sought to overcome since the start of the 2011 budget year Oct. 1. Another $1.8 billion would fund NASA's space shuttle orbiters in 2011, including $825 million for "additional Space Shuttle costs."

"The news isn't all good for Florida, however. Congressional appropriators want NASA to cut more than $200 million, or about half the money that had been earmarked to begin modernizing the badly outdated launch facilities at KSC next year."
