NASA 2018 budget documents have been posted for public consumption. Accompanying the documents is an almost-ninety-second video titled "NASA: Dream. Innovate. Build. Discover." The video has much text in it...
What is possible? / What can we do? / Where can we go? / NASA will continue world leadership in space.
The video states that NASA is "on target" to launch the James Webb in 2018, and that it will send another rover to Mars in 2020.
We'll develop new technologies to reach into space. / We'll expand industry partnerships to support strong economic growth. Commercial companies soon will send our astronauts into space. / We'll make air travel safer and more efficient.
The video mentions the SLS and Orion which will send astronauts on deep space missions, and the current developing mission to investigate Europa.

Today at 9am CDT on NASA-TV1, the Senate Commerce Committee held a hearing on the nomination of Representative James Bridenstine to be NASA Administrator. Bridenstine has nine years active duty in the U.S. Navy. He currently represents Oklahoma's First Congressional District.
