Dear Mr. Chairman:
In my letter of February 25, 2004, I forwarded to you a copy of the Status Report of the Recommendations from the NNSA Lessons Learned Review of NASA’s Columbia Accident Investigation Board Report. I have completed my review of the recommendations and have enclosed a status report summarizing my decisions concerning which recommendations to act on and my rationale for deferring one recommendation. The report also describes the current status of actions to address the recommendations that we have adopted.
If you have any questions, please contact me or have your staff contact Jim McConnell at 202-586-4379 or Dick Crowe at 301-903-6214.
