NASA’s handling of excess property after the shuttle program’s retirement will be the focus of an upcoming hearing at Kennedy Space Center led by U.S. Rep. John Mica.
The hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Feb. 10 at the KSC Visitor Complex’s Debus Center.
Witnesses are expected to include representatives from NASA, Air Force 45th Space Wing, General Services Administration, Canaveral Port Authority, Space Florida and Audubon of Florida.
Mica, a Republican from Florida’s seventh district, chairs the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform’s subcommittee on government operations.
Mica's district doesn't include KSC — that's fellow Republican Bill Posey — but Mica has publicly expressed interest in the disposal subject before.
