WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX), Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, made the following statement on the President’s signing of Space Policy Directive 4, a directive that centralizes military space activities in a new Space Force embedded within the Air Force.
“This is an important next step towards real reform of national security space where we face real threats posed by Russia and China. The House Armed Services Committee led the way in passing a similar measure several years ago, so this proposal has a record of attracting bipartisan support in Congress. I look forward to reviewing the final legislative proposal when it is submitted to Congress.”
