    Anyhow, NASA is funded by, and authorized by, the House & Senate.    The House subcommittee with control of the pur$e is the Science, State, Justice, and Commerce subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee.   The budget that they debate about, "mark-up" and ultimately vote on initially comes from the White House, mainly from its Office of Management & Budget (or OMB, which is scrutinized by, among other watchdog entities).

     Meanwhile NASA, the National Science Foundation and the FAA´s Administrator for Space Transportation (AST) are "overseen" or "policed" by Congress through the congressional Science Committees.   Senator John McCain has chaired the Senate´s Science, Commerce & Technology Committee.   Its counterpart in the House is the House Science Committee.   Here is an alternative website for John McCain, who says that N.A.S.A. is more of an acronym for "never a straight answer".
