House Members Urge House Leaders to Grant $2B to NASA

NASAWatch reports that a few dozen house members have sent a letter to the house leadership requesting 2 Billion additional funding for NASA to offset costs associated with bringing the Orion online, cleaning up after Katrina, and bringing the shuttle back to flight after the loss of Columbia. Read the text of the legislation and hit up these leaders with your agreement of the letter.

From the letter:

"Making much-needed investments in space and aeronautics research and development will also have a long-term and beneficial economic impact, contributing new jobs, industrial development and stimulus to struggling communities."

The letter was sent to the following leaders:

Nancy Pelosi (California)
Steny Hoyer (Maryland)
David Obey (Wisconsin)
John Boehner (Ohio)
Roy Blunt (Missouri)
Jerry Lewis (California)
