HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — NASA leaders will discuss the Fiscal Year 2015 budget today. We expect to hear about the impacts of the proposed budget to both NASA and the Marshall Space Flight Center on Redstone Arsenal.

NASA administrator Charles Bolden will discuss the budget at a news briefing from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. The briefing is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.

Congress approved NASA’s budget for FY 2014 at $17.6 Billion. That is slightly less than President Obama’s budget for NASA, which was $17.7 Billion. However, it is about $120 Million above the spending level for FY 2013. That includes $4.1 Billion for space exploration, including the multi-purpose crew vehicle and the space launch system flight program.

Marshall Space Flight Center Director Patrick Scheuerman will talk about the budget following NASA’s briefing. He is scheduled to speak at 2:45 p.m. at the Marshall Center.

WHNT News 19 plans to be there. We’ll update you with the details of how the nation’s budget will impact the goals of NASA and the Marshall Space Flight Center over this year.

    More proof that it is the Tea Party Republicans that want to cut the military and NASA. The Tea Party Republicans wanted to keep the deep sequestration level cuts. It was because of the strong stand taken by President Obama that the House of Representative spending levels are only slightly cut from the White House budget for NASA. Set your hatred aside and look at the facts!

    It’s not a secret that the Tea Party wants to cut spending. Everyone’s known that since they came into existence.
