House defense bill draft doesn't include Space Force
Posted: Sun, Jun 9, 2019, 9:43 AM ET (1343 GMT)
A draft version of a defense authorization bill in the House is silent on the issue of creating a Space Force. The House Armed Services Committee subcommittee on strategic forces on Monday released proposed language for its section of the National Defense Authorization Act for 2020. The bill includes several space policy and space procurement provisions but makes no mention of a Space Force, which instead will likely be taken up by the full committee when it marks up the entire bill June 12. The space policy provisions that are in the subcommittee draft include language directing continued development of space-based missile sensors and procurement of commercial space situational awareness services to augment Air Force capabilities.
