Congressional Briefings

Art Harman, the Director of the Coalition to Save Manned Space Exploration, participated in a massive Congressional lobbying campaign over two days with volunteer space advocates from around the country, and members of many space advocacy organizations. This was the annual Space Exploration Alliance's "Legislative Blitz," which this year met with staff and members of Congress in over 175 offices.

You can help too! Call your Senators and Representative, and ask that they support a bold new space program, and the funding to support it. Call 202-224-3121, and when you reach your Senators' and Representative's offices, ask for the Legislative Assistant that handles NASA so you are talking with the staffer responsible for that issue.

Now that we have a president that is more friendly to the space program, it is vital to build greater support in Congress for a return to the moon and a true roadmap to Mars. Congress has already passed the NASA Transition Authorization Act this year, which offers good guidance for NASA in restoring our space program to greatness.
