Congressional Space Blitz Success!
The Space Exploration Alliance Blitz on Congress has been a big success. Roughly 25 members from the National Space Society and other space organizations gathered to promote space, holding meetings with nearly 100 Congressional offices!
The efforts were rewarded on Monday night with positive budget news for NASA. The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Space put out a budget that was $280 million more than the President's request. While this is only the start of the process, Blitzers can be proud that their efforts have been making a big difference.
