Another Step Towards Commercial Space
House Science Committee Passes Commercial Space Launch Amendments Act of 2004
Mojave, California – February 6, 2004: XCOR Aerospace praised the House Science Committee for its swift mark-up and passage of H.R. 3752, the Commercial Space Launch Amendments Act of 2004, earlier this week.
“The Members and staff of the House Science Committee have crafted an excellent piece of legislation that will help foster the new commercial human space flight industry. Several staffers took the time to understand very technical details and subtle regulatory and policy issues, and therefore were able to produce a bill that will make a real difference,” said XCOR CEO Jeff Greason. “Ultimate credit goes to the lawmakers who sponsored the legislation; Mr. Rohrabacher, lead sponsor of this bill, and co-sponsors Chairman Boehlert, Mr. Hall, Ranking Member Gordon, and Mr. Lampson."
The bill takes major steps such as:
The company urges everyone interested in the commercialization of space to write or call their Member of Congress. Ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 3752 and to support the bill when it comes up for vote on the floor of the House of Representatives.
