Aerospace Industries Association concerned by House appropriations allocations

16-May-2011 9:07 AM

Aerospace Industries Association expressed (13-May-2011) concern that actions by the House Appropriations Committee may result in cuts to NASA’s Space Launch System and FAA’s Next Generation Air Transportation System. AIA President and CEO Marion Blakey stated: “The House Appropriations Committee’s proposed top-line numbers for fiscal year 2012 for areas of the budget that cover NASA and FAA are substantially reduced from last year. If cuts are made to critical federal investment programs at these agencies, our leadership in space and safety in our airspace could be endangered.” [more]
