U.S. Leadership in Space

The Colorado Space Coalition works closely with Colorado’s congressional delegation to advance legislation that enables Colorado’s space industry ecosystem to thrive. The Colorado Space Coalition’s Recommended Legislative Strategies for Space, outlines the CSC’s legislative strategy and requests for the year ahead, and serves as a resource for members of Colorado’s delegation and their staff to help set a cohesive strategy of policy and funding priorities for space.

The Ensuring U.S. Leadership in Space white paper was spearheaded by the Space Foundation, and is intended to serve as a resource for presidential campaigns. The paper is aligned with the CSC’s own legislative priorities. The document’s message amplifies the CSC’s own legislative priorities, and the CSC is proud to be among the 13 space organizations which are signatories to this effort.

There are several action items necessary to continue U.S. leadership in space, such as strengthening the industrial base and committing to a robust national security space program. Support for U.S. space programs and industry means support for our nation’s economy, security, leadership, and high-quality American jobs and businesses.
