House passes defense bill with Space Corps provision
Posted: Sun, Jul 16, 2017, 8:59 AM ET (1259 GMT)
US Capitol The House of Representatives passed a defense bill July 13 that retains language requiring the Air Force to establish a Space Corps. The National Defense Authorization Act includes a provision that would create a separate Space Corps within the Air Force devoted to space issues, analogous to the Marine Corps within the Navy. The bill passed the House after the rules committee rejected a proposed amendment that would have replaced the Space Corps language with only a requirement for a study. The White House and Pentagon leadership oppose the formation of a Space Corps.
