Physics and Politics H.R. 4660 Science Funding Bill Passed

You may remember a post about a week and a half ago urging everyone to contact their representatives about the upcoming vote on H.R. 4660, the bill that set the spending levels for NASA and the NSF this year among other things.  The bill passed.  My call to my representative Bill Flores apparently didn't hurt, as he voted yes on the bill..  To see the voting record on the bill, check out the record for H.R. 4660.  Interestingly more democrats voted against the bill than republicans.  More interestingly, to me, there are no independents in the House of Representatives at the moment.  One last note of interest: the vote was taken at 1:14 AM.
