I would like to invite you to a Space Transportation Association breakfast with Congressman James Walsh, Chairman of the VA, HUD and Independent Agencies Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee. The Breakfast will be held Wednesday, August 1, 2001. Chairman Walsh's subcommittee directly oversees the NASA budget for the House of Representatives.
Congressman Walsh will offer his insight on the recent NASA appropriation mark-up and what we may expect from the Appropriations Committee this year regarding NASA funding. Congressman Walsh is well regarded for his thoughtful and provocative positions pertaining to NASA and space in general. The Space Transportation Association is honored to have him as our August Speaker.
The Breakfast meeting will be held at the Capitol Hill Club, 300 First Street, S.E., Washington, DC. The Capitol South Metro station is located across the street for your convenience. Coffee will be served at 7:30 a.m. for early arrivals.
There will be a $20.00 fee for all STA members and a $30.00 fee for all non-members. We ask that you send a check in advance or pay at the door. If you do plan to attend, reply by email to STA4Space@aol.com or call 703-671-4116.
I look forward to seeing you for breakfast with Congressman Walsh.
Eric W. Stallmer
