H.R. 4916 Aeronautics and Space Prize Act

NASA Watch has a post on the Aeronautics and Space Prize Act sponsored by Representative Dana Rohrabacher. The details are here. With my limited legal reading ability, it looks like it's a bill to establish a national endowment for space prizes that's funded by NASA-related advertising, as well as by private gifts. I didn't notice anything about any "regular" Congressional funding of NASA or other government space prizes.
