In the recent post Push in Congress for Additional NASA Funding (Update), we detailed how Congresswoman Suzanne Kosmas and Congressman Ken Calvert created a letter calling on the President to increase NASA’s funding. In that post we encouraged you to contact your Congressman and Senator and ask them to sign on to the Kosmas-Calvert letter. The original deadline for supporting representatives to add their signature to the letter was yesterday Tuesday Nov. 17. An extension to that deadline has been made. The new deadline for signing on to the Obama letter is noon Friday, Nov. 20th. If you haven’t contacted your representative yet, please do so ASAP!.
Your support is important. Since the original announcement, more representatives have signed on. The current list of congressional signers to the letter is:
Kosmas, Calvert, Barton, R. Bishop, K. Brady, C. Brown, H.Brown, Cao, Capps, Carter, Chaffetz, Chu, Connolly, Culberson, Cummings, A. Davis, M. Diaz-Balart, C.
