Ethan reports Senate Appropriations committee reinserted JWST funding in its bill, at some cost.
Issue will now move to conference committee, where we’ll find out how serious the House republicans are about making an example of JWST
My guess is they’ll be very serious, since they’ll see it as another opportunity to embarrass the president.
“Reinserted”? Huh? Odd terminology,.
The Senate didn’t “re-insert” anything. They put JWST in their appropriations bill. (No one expected the Mikulski machine not to.) The House didn’t put it in their bill. Two bills, one with it, and one without it. They have to fight it out in conference.
Ethan’s headline — “News Flash: James Webb Space Telescope SAVED!” shows that he doesn’t understand civics or legislative process. Being a theoretician will do that to ya, dont’cha know.
Nah, it got taken out at one point, put back in at another…
House sends budget bills to Senate – they originate in the House.
Ethan is a bit keen, but some of us theorers do occasionally peer under the rocks to see how the sausage is actually made.
