Nelson clears Senate confirmation hearing
Posted: Fri, Apr 23, 2021, 5:57 PM ET (2157 GMT)
Former senator Bill Nelson breezed through a confirmation hearing Wednesday for his nomination to be NASA administrator. Nelson got a warm reception from former colleagues on the Senate Commerce Committee, none of whom showed any reservations about him being the next leader of NASA. The committee's chairwoman, Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), did raise concerns about NASA's decision to award a single Human Landing System contract last week, but Nelson said he would work to accelerate competitions for later lander services. The committee is expected to report the nomination to the full Senate next week.
