Jan 31, 2024 | Comunicados de Prensa

Air National Guard units conducting U.S. Space Force missions are currently housed under the U.S. Air Force. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2024 directed a study to determine the next steps for these units, including the potential of creating a Space National Guard. 

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and colleagues reintroduced the Space National Guard Establishment Act of 2024 to establish a Space National Guard.

  • “Creating a Space National Guard would boost military readiness and efficiency. It would also ensure that the Space Force retains needed talent. I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass this common-sense bill.”  – senador Rubio

Senators Laphonza Butler (D-CA), Alex Padilla (D-CA), John Hickenlooper (D-CO), James Risch (R-ID), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Rick Scott (R-FL), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), J.D. Vance (R-OH), and Bill Hagerty (R-TN) are original cosponsors.
