Bill to make space settlement a NASA priority
Check this out:

Quote:The Space Exploration, Development and Settlement (SEDS) Act is about to be introduced in Congress. The purpose of the SEDS Act is to authorize and instruct NASA to pursue permanent human settlements in outer space.

The Space Frontier Foundation is encouraging its members to contact their Congressfolk, and ask them to co-sponsor this bill (which will be introduced by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California).  A similar call to action was sent out by the National Space Society.

More background behind the advocacy of this bill can be found in this excellent article by Jeff Foust.

I haven't been able to find the actual text of the proposed bill, though.  Perhaps your google-fu is stronger than mine?  If anybody finds it, please post here!

This would be great, hopefully it would keep progress on track even through president changes, which is hard to do now.
