Delegates to push NASA’s vision at budget hearing, Daily Press

“The president’s NASA budget for fiscal year 2007 is expected to be about $17.9 billion, up from $16.2 billion a year ago. But the aeronautics request is expected to be $694.4 million, down 14 percent.”

Next year could be even tougher for Langley, Virginian-Pilot

“Langley jobs are safe through next year, thanks to legislation that Virginias delegation helped push through last month that protects NASAs aeronautics workers from layoffs through March 16, 2007.”
