House Space Subcommittee Members Named for 113th Congress
The House Science, Space and Technology (HSS&T) Committee held its 113th Congress organizational meeting today. The committee adopted the rosters for the members of its six subcommittees, including the Space Subcommittee.
The committee previously decided to have six instead of five subcommittees this Congress, splitting the Energy and Environment Subcommittee into two. It also has streamlined the names of the subcommittees, so each is identified with only one word: Energy, Environment, Space, Technology, Research and Oversight.
The Space Subcommittee still has jurisdiction over aeronautics research (the first "A" in NASA); the renaming did not change that. The subcommittee will once again be chaired by Rep. Steve Palazzo (R-MS), whose state includes NASA's Stennis Space Center. The top Democrat is Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD), who represents a district very close to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center where she once worked as a contractor for Lockheed.
The full roster follows.
