From Highlights of the Final FY05 Spending Bills (NASA Excerpt), House Appropriations Committee

“NASA is funded at $16.2 billion, $822 million above last year and $44 million below the request. The agreement give NASA almost total funding flexibility, but requires NASA to report to the Congress within 60 days on how they will adjust program values to cover increased costs associated with the Hubble servicing/repair mission and shuttle return-to-flight activities.  This flexibility is unprecedented and gives the Administrator broad latitude to implement the President’s vision for Space within the funds provided in the bill.”
