Todd Harrison, director of the Aerospace Security Project at the Center for Strategic & International Studies, outlines congressional reaction to U.S. Space Command and the coming debate over the new command’s headquarters.

U.S. Space Command is making its return after being disestablished for 17 years. Appropriating for the new command is just one of the priorities laid out in the National Defense Authorization Act. Todd Harrison, director of the Aerospace Security Project at the Center for Strategic & International Studies, says that Congress seems to be giving bipartisan support of the new combatant command

 

“If you look in the House and Senate versions of the NDAA, both are supportive of Space Command. They both authorize the full requested amount which is $84 million for FY20,” Harrison said. “It may seem like a lot, it’d be a lot for you and me, but in the grand scheme of things, it is one 100th of a percent of the total defense budget. It is not a big leap to authorize $84 million in the next year. That’ll likely grow a little bit in the coming years.”
