NSS, SEA Plan Legislative Blitz

A note from NSS Executive Director Gary Barnhardt:

The National Space Society and the Space Exploration Alliance invite you to participate in the annual Legislative Blitz in Washington, D.C. from February 27 to March 1. The 2011 Blitz comes at a crucial moment. In September 2010, Congress passed the NASA Authorization Act of 2010. It is now time for Congress to enact legislation that appropriates the required funding in compliance with the Authorization Act.

Over 100 meetings are anticipated with Congressional offices. Blitz participants will have the opportunity to discuss the future direction of our nation’s space program. Come join space advocates from around the country to let Congress know that there is strong constituent support for an ambitious space program.

You can register to participate in the Legislative Blitz by following this link (Register Now!), or, for more information contact Rick Zucker at rick.zucker@nss.org.

If you can not attend please consider lending your financial support to the effort (Online Donation)
