Following is a mass mailing from the National Space Society:<br /><br />Call Congress now to support Moon and Mars! <br />At this critical moment, show your support for space and your fellow members by taking action for our future!<br />Washington, DC July 20, 2004 Yesterday, the House Appropriations subcommittee in charge of civil space recommended that NASA's budget be cut by 7% from requested levels. That's a cut of over $1 BILLION.<br /><br />This is unacceptable. The subcommittee have cut the exploration budget and many of the programs essential to our nation's future. And they did it on the 35th anniversary of the Apollo XI moon landing! <br /><br />But it is not over yet. There is another meeting of the full committee that can review this first recommendation on Thursday, and it is essential that you let them know how you feel. <br /><br />What can you do? Call Congress today or tomorrow, especially if you are a constituent of the representatives on the committee. Tell them that you support full funding of the NASA fiscal year budget request.<br /><br />The House switchboard is: 202-225-3121. They can connect you to any the office of any representative. First, look over the list below, and make sure to call your representative if you see them on the list. But call regardless! There is very little time and we must act fast.<br /><br />Here are the members of the committee: Call now! It's not too late to turn this decision around. <br /><br />Clifford McMurray and George Whitesides <br /><br />NSS Executive Vice President and Executive Director <br /><br />===================================<br /><br />House Appropriations Committee<br /><br />C. W. Bill Young, FL (R - Chairman) David R. Obey, WI (D - Ranking Member) <br /><br />Ralph Regula, OH (R) John P. Murtha, PA (D) <br /><br />Jerry Lewis, CA (R) Norman D.
