The James Webb Telescope, successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, has been cut by the House Appropriations Committee. An amendment to the NASA budget to restore funding to the telescope was defeated July 14. The telescope has been plagued with large cost overruns.

However, it remains possible that funding could be restored in the Senate. Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) plans to defend the telescope. Her home state includes the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, which manages the project.
