The following is a statement by Glenn Research Center Director Donald J.
Campbell regarding the FY 2002 funding increase for the Center in the
VA-HUD-Independent Agencies Appropriations Bill.

“Because of the strong support from our two U.S. Senators, the Ohio
Delegation and the Governor, coupled with the support from the Cleveland and
Northeastern Ohio business communities led by John Lewis of the Ohio
Aerospace Council, the budget adjustments made in the final conference
report of the VA-HUD-Independent Agencies Appropriations Bill will enable
the men and women of Glenn Research Center to continue with the valuable
research they are doing in aeronautics and space and fills the void that we
have had because of previous proposed cuts.”
