Senators Reject Trump Push To Cut NASA Education

Senators to Trump Administration; Do Not Hurt Workforce By Cutting NASA Education Funding, US Senate

"Today, U.S. Senators Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), co-chairs of the Senate Career and Technical Education (CTE) Caucus, are leading a group of 32 Senators in a letter urging the Senate Appropriations Committee to support NASA's Office of Education in the coming fiscal year. President Trump's budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2018 (FY18) would eliminate NASA's Office of Education, which works to inspire and educate students across the country to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). In Virginia, funding from NASA's Office of Education enables students to explore careers in STEM-related fields at NASA Langley, NASA Wallops, and in Virginia's robust technology sector."
