2022 NASA Authorization Bill on Its Way to Biden’s Desk, Space Policy Online
“The House passed the first NASA authorization bill in five years today. It is part of a bill that has strong support by President Biden, the CHIPS and Science Act, and he could sign it by the end of the week. A policy bill, it does not provide any funding for NASA or even recommendations for funding, but lays out bipartisan and bicameral support for NASA’s human spaceflight, science, technology, and aeronautics programs. Among the highlights are extending the U.S. commitment to the International Space Station through 2030, enthusiasm for returning astronauts to the Moon and going on to Mars, and launching a space telescope dedicated to finding asteroids that might threaten Earth. The legislation has had a number of names and bill numbers as it worked its way through the House and Senate: the Endless Frontier Act, the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act, the America COMPETES Act, the Bipartisan Innovation Act, the Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors (CHIPS) Act, and the CHIPS+ or CHIPS-Plus Act.”
