House Passes McKinley Bill To Name Fairmont Facility After Katherine Johnson

This week the House passed S. 3389, naming NASA’s IV&V Program in the Fairmont facility after Katherine Johnson, the trailblazing NASA mathematician and West Virginia native.

This has and continues to be a top priority for our office.
