The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) conducts U.S. civilian space activities. For FY2006, NASA requested $16,456.3 million, a 2.4%increase over the $16,070.4 million it received in the FY2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act (P.L. 108-447), or 1.6% more than the total of $16,196.4 million it received for FY2005, including a hurricane supplemental. The final version of the FY2006 appropriations bill that includes NASA (H.R. 2862) approves $16,456.8 million ($500,000 above the request); it is awaiting signature by the President. A NASA authorization bill (H.R. 3070) passed the House with a $510 million increase above the request; the Senate-passed version (S. 1281) has a $100 million increase. The Administration included $324.8 million for NASA in the October 28, 2005 reallocation package that includes funds for hurricane relief. This report is updated regularly.
