WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies with jurisdiction over the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) – announced during the hearing today the Subcommittee’s intent to hold future oversight hearings on the Artemis program.

“I plan on today’s hearing being the first in an ongoing dialogue with NASA and others to explore the Artemis program and the impact it will have on our country,” said Sen. Moran. “It goes without saying the significant impact the Apollo program had on our nation. We continue to reap the benefits of those missions, and I anticipate that Artemis will do the same for years to come.”

“I want to commend you, Administrator Bridenstine, Vice President Pence and the Trump Administration for continuing that inspiration with its bold visions, historic accomplishments and your focus of returning astronauts to the Moon with the Artemis program,” continued Sen. Moran.
