Subject: [CPEO-MEF] PRESERVATION: House Committee drops restoration funding for Moffett Field's (CA) Hangar one
Funding for Hangar One cut from 2012 budget

Once stripped of its toxic siding, Moffett Field's Hangar One may remain a skeletal structure exposed to the elements for years to come until federal funds are found to cover it up again.

Preservationists suffered a serious setback Wednesday when the U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee approved a 2012 funding bill for NASA that omits $32.8 million previously allocated to replace the iconic hangar's siding. A Navy contractor has been removing its roof and walls.

Without the funding, "there's a chance (the hangar) will sit as an empty carcass for years until somebody figures out what to do," said Lenny Siegel, a member of the Moffett Field Restoration Advisory Board.

Hopes for federal money to save Moffett Field's historic Hangar One were dashed on Tuesday when it was announced that the House Appropriations Committee removed $32.8 million for new Hangar One siding from NASA's 2012 budget.

The move followed a NASA Inspector General report which criticized the NASA Ames Research Center request for the $32.8 million when more "mission critical" NASA projects would be delayed.
