Space Station Freedom emerged a clear winner from the House and Senate conference on September 26, which was Congress's final action of the year on the NASA budget. Selected members from the appropriations committees of both houses ironed out a compromise between the Senate and House budget bills that cover NASA and the National Science Foundation.
The conference report, as the compromise is called, followed the general approach of the Senate rather than that of the House in funding NASA for FY 1992. NASA will receive $1.4 billion less than the $15.7 billion requested by the president.
