NASA Administrator Charles Bolden's Statement On The 2011 Spending Bill

WASHINGTON -- NASA Administrator Charles Bolden issued the following
statement Thursday about the passage of the 2011 spending bill:

"We appreciate the work of Congress to pass a 2011 spending bill. NASA
now has appropriated funds to implement the 2010 Authorization Act,
which gives us a clear path forward to continue America's leadership
in human spaceflight, exploration and scientific discovery. Among
other things, this bill lifts funding restrictions that limited our
flexibility to carry out our shared vision for the future. With this
funding, we will continue to aggressively develop a new heavy lift
rocket, multipurpose crew vehicle and commercial capability to
transport our astronauts and their supplies on American-made and
launched spacecraft. We are committed to living within our means in
these tough fiscal times - and we are committed to carrying out our
ambitious new plans for exploration and discovery."
