Washington, DC

Dear Mr. President,

As chairmen of the House Science and Technology Committee and its Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee, we have a strong interest in ensuring that the nation’s space and aeronautics programs are healthy and robust. In that regard, we are deeply concerned about the mismatch between the resources being provided to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the tasks that it is being asked to undertake. Stresses resulting from that mismatch can be seen in all of the agency’s programs…

…Mr. President, we believe that a strong, robust civil space and aeronautics program is in the national interest of the United States. We want to work with you to ensure that the nation will have such a program and that NASA will have the resources it needs to carry out its important work. We echo the views of other members of Congress who have expressed their interest in meeting with you on this important matter, and we hope that there will be the opportunity for all of us to meet with you in the near future to discuss how best to realize our common goals…
