Ingalls, NASA, Coast dwellers win in Senate committee

WASHINGTON — Appropriations bills approved Thursday by the Senate Appropriations Committee would boost programs that are important to Mississippians, including the National Flood Insurance Program, NASA’s Space Launch System and U.S. Coast Guard shipbuilding, Sen. Thad Cochran said in a press release.

The Homeland Security Appropriations Bill and the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Bill now will go to the full Senate consideration with the understanding that funding in both measures may need to be adjusted to fit within the discretionary spending caps set by the Budget Control Act of 2011, he said.
