Coalition for Space Exploration Statement Regarding U.S. House of Representatives Budget Proposal.

HOUSTON, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The U.S. House of Representatives budget proposal deals a heavy blow to America's space exploration program. It will extend the gap in human space flight beyond 2014 by delaying the development of the Orion spacecraft and Ares launch vehicle. It will also extend our nation's reliance on Russia for human space flight capability.

"Additionally, there is potential for significant negative economic impact with the loss of jobs and skilled workforce in a number of states around the country.

"We strongly encourage the Senate - which only two months ago approved in the Appropriations Committee a $1 billion increase in funding for NASA - to take an aggressive stand opposing the House cuts and in support of keeping America's space exploration program moving forward."
 Joe Mayer, Chairman - Public Affairs Team
