US Senator Chuck Schumer Argues Against Weather Satellite Budget Cut
U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer recently cited this Buffalo News article while criticizing the U.S. House of Representatives for proposing to cut $369 million from the next-generation weather satellite budget. The cut would leave just $50 million for the entire program. The same budget also proposes a 0.8 percent increase in the budget for deep space exploration to $19.1 billion. Why can’t we have both? It’s all a matter of priorities.
