House committee approves Space Corps
Posted: Sun, Jun 16, 2019, 10:13 AM ET (1413 GMT)
The House Armed Services Committee approved a proposal late Wednesday night to create a Space Corps. During a late-night markup of its National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the committee voted in favor of an amendment that would create a U.S. Space Corps within the Air Force, led by a four-star commandant. The Space Corps will have personnel and assets transferred by the Air Force, but not NRO or NGA. The Air Force would also be able to establish a separate, alternative acquisition system for defense space acquisitions. The language in the House bill will ultimately have to be reconciled with that in the Senate's version of the NDAA that creates a Space Force.
