Florida Today reports that NASA is turning over documents demanded by the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee related to a heavy-lift rocket the agency is legally obligated to build, apparently heading off the panel’s threat to subpoena the information.

The June 27 deadline for handing over the documents came and went with no subpoena issued, the article says.

     “NASA Administrator Charles Bolden wrote lawmakers Thursday [June 23] that the agency had provided hundreds of pages of contract documents and that agency staffers are in regular contact with committee staffers.

     “Senators and their staffers are reviewing the documents NASA has provided and no subpoena was issued Monday.”
