ABSTRACT

H. Rept. 113-470: National Aeronautics and Space Administration Authorization Act of 2014, Report of the Committee on Science and Technology of the House of Representatives on H.R. 4412, Including Cost Estimate of the Congressional Budget Office, June 5, 2014   [open pdf - 13MB]

From Background and Need for the Legislation: "The NASA Authorization Acts of 2005, 2008, and 2010 provided policy and programmatic guidance for the Administration that made clear that the Administration is, and should remain, a multimission agency with a balanced portfolio of programs in science, aeronautics, and human space flight, including human and robotic exploration beyond low Earth orbit. The NASA Authorization Act of 2014 reaffirms the basic principles espoused in the prior NASA Authorization acts, while emphasizing the importance of providing a long-term goal of a human mission to the surface of Mars and the need for a Human Exploration Roadmap to define the capabilities and milestones required to achieve the goal, and maintaining U.S. leadership in NASA's space and Earth science, aeronautics research and development, and human spaceflight programs. The need for the legislation at this time is the expiration of an authorization for the Administration."
