WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies –  today issued the following statement after President Trump released the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) budget request for FY2021:

“If the United States is going to accomplish our shared goal of a Moon landing by 2024, NASA must actively execute a plan of well-defined programs and activities that are both strategic and transparent. While it is encouraging to see a proposed budget that supports returning American astronauts to the Moon, I remain eager to receive sufficient budget details to match our ambitious human exploration goals.

“In addition, I am disappointed the budget would cut STEM education, which plays a vital role in making certain we have the talent to achieve our mission. I look forward to my subcommittee’s oversight hearings in the coming months to discuss the FY2021 budget, the specifics of the five-year Artemis plan and how this budget will ensure our nation’s leadership in the space domain for years to come.”

President Trump has established the goal of NASA returning Americans to moon to prepare for missions to mars.
