Don't cut planetary science funding, members of Congress urged NASA on Friday. In a letter to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden , Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), urged the space agency to maintain funding levels for missions to Mars and the outer planets that were allocated by Congress this spring -- and not to react to budget pressures by making disproportionate cuts to the science budget. "While we fully understand that the funding levels ... are subject to change to reflect across-the-board and sequester cuts, we expect that the balance among programs will remain consistent with the structure directed by Congress," they wrote.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) came to La Cañada Flintridge on Wednesday to decry the partisan division in Congress and warn that it could lead to economic devastation. “This is a terrible way to run a government. It is a byproduct, I think, of an extraordinarily hyper-partisan environment, where compromise is a bad word,” Schiff said at a luncheon meeting of Kiwanis Club La Cañada. “We know what needs to be done. There's a limited range of options, none of them all that palatable, but they have to be done.” Schiff laid out the pressing financial issues facing Congress: the need to raise the debt ceiling once again, to extend or otherwise mitigate the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, and to avoid spending cuts - or sequestration - triggered if Congress doesn't put a debt-reduction plan in place.

Letters to the Editor Congress Must Cut Spending Now that the mid-term elections are over, perhaps we can put aside partisan bickering and focus on a problem that, left unresolved, will adversely affect the future well being of every American. This is not a Republican versus Democrat issue, nor Liberal versus Conservative: it cuts across all ideological lines.   David M. Walker, head of the Government Accountability Office, an investigative arm of Congress tasked with the job of auditing and evaluating the performance of the federal government, says "it's time to steer the nation off the path to financial ruin."

Jet Propulsion Laboratory's missions to Mars have gotten a boost from congressional leaders, who this week found up to $100 million more for NASA's planetary science program. The White House's initial proposal for the 2013 NASA budget would have cut planetary science funding by $300 million, scrapping two future Mars missions and threatening hundreds of jobs at JPL. A new version of the NASA budget that passed the House Appropriations Committee on Thursday restores $88 million of the planetary science cuts, said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank)

Taxes and truck safety were on the minds of many of the few hundred locals who showed up on April 15 for a La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce luncheon at Descanso Gardens with U.S. Rep. David Dreier (R-San Dimas). At the lunch, Dreier offered insight into recent doings in the nation?s capitol, as well as his thoughts on tax issues and the recent double fatality commercial truck crash in La Cañada. ?I don?t want to dictate anything down from Washington, D.C., but, anything we can do, you have my commitment to do that,?

Letters to the Editor Open Letter to Rep. Dreier OK, I give up, Congressman. I'm tossing in the towel. I surrender. The past five months, I have contacted your office three times by mail — I figure that's a buck seventeen in postage I have blown — and seven times by telephone. I've had no response from you folks; not a peep, not a letter, not a call, not a fax or e-mail. Zip. Nada. I don't mind telling you I'm having a difficult time dealing with this rejection.

La Cañada's soundwall study to reduce noise generated by increasing traffic on the 210 Freeway has finally been approved by the state department of transportation, and the city is continuing its effort to find sources of funding for the project, city officials said this week. The funding picture remains a challenge, however, as the city was officially informed last week that $500,000 requested by Rep. David Dreier (R-San Dimas) is not in the federal budget. A Dreier aide explained that the congressman had put the money into a continuing resolution for federal transit funding.
