GALVESTON, Texas NASA did not break any laws nor was there any inappropriate political influence when the space agency picked the new homes for the four retired space shuttles, according to a report released Thursday.

The shuttles will be going to museums in Washington, Los Angeles, Cape Canaveral, Fla., and New York, based on recommendations by a special NASA team and the decision of NASA Administrator Charles Bolden.

Bolden released the names of the cities that would get a shuttle in April. The announcement drew the ire of the Texas Congressional delegation and of many in the Bay Area, home of Johnson Space Center.
