Rubio Introduces Bill to Strengthen Spaceport Operations

Jul 11, 2023 | Press Releases

Currently, the U.S. Space Force (USSF) is wholly reliant on commercial providers, yet lacks the authority to meet commercial entities’ requirements. As USSF and commercial launches increase in the coming years, new authorities are needed to support launch infrastructure to ensure the U.S. maintains its leadership in space.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced the Enhancing Spaceport Operations Act to help accommodate the additional launches between USSF and commercial launch providers, ensuring that the U.S. remains competitive with the rising threats from China and Russia

  • “In order to keep the United States as a global leader in space, we must continue to invest in our launch infrastructure. This legislation is a common-sense approach that will ensure American commercial and military space operations remain competitive.”  – Senator Rubio

This legislation would directly benefit Space Launch Delta 45, headquartered at Patrick Space Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. 

Looking Forward Senator Rubio will continue to fight for Florida and ensure that our military has the resources it needs in the upcoming Fiscal Year 2024 National Defense Authorization Act.
