The space station will be sent through Congress on its own merits as a singular authorization bill, according to House Science Committee chair Robert Walker (R-Pa.). To be introduced in early May, the bill will ask for $2.1 billion a year for 6 years for a total commitment of $12.6 billion. Walker says the strategy is largely intended to prove to international partners that the American commitment to the station is indeed strong and long-term. Traditionally, the station has been susceptible to annual budget cycles, as part of the Veterans Administration-Housing and Urban Development Bill, which includes the bulk of NASA funding.
