Posted: Sun, Jul 2, 2017, 9:43 AM ET (1343 GMT)
US Capitol House appropriators are offering NASA a budget increase in its version of a spending bill. The House Appropriations Committee released a draft commerce, justice and science (CJS) bill June 28 that would give NASA nearly $19.9 billion in 2018, $780 million above the administration's request and more than $200 million above what the agency received in 2017. The bill would offer significant increases for exploration programs and also fund education programs that the proposal sought to shut down. The CJS subcommittee approved the bill on a voice vote June 29.
