GCP urges congressional support to protect NASA Glenn priorities, funding

In partnership with the office of U.S. Senator Rob Portman, the Greater Cleveland Partnership hosted a congressional briefing in the U.S. Capitol on the importance of NASA Glenn Research Center to Northeast Ohio and issued a rallying cry to attendees on the need to protect and grow the economic impact of the Center in the region.

“Ohio’s congressional delegation strongly supports NASA Glenn,” said Marty McGann, the GCP’s senior vice president of advocacy. “Our elected leaders understand that NASA Glenn’s $600 million in direct spending generates over $1 billion in economic impact that touches every corner of our state.”

Congressional staff from the majority of Ohio’s delegation attended the meeting along with several organizations and companies who work directly with NASA Glenn on their core missions.

The GCP will continue these dialogues with federal elected officials and key businesses to advocate for NASA Glenn’s highest priorities in the upcoming federal budget and other legislative opportunities.
