Washington, August 15, 2022
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36) issued the following statement after leading the entire Texas Congressional Delegation in a letter to U.S. Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall III, urging him to consider Texas as a potential basing location for the U.S. Space Forces’ Space Training and Readiness Command (STARCOM). Congressman Babin serves as the Ranking Member of the House Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee, as well as the Co-Chair of the Congressional Space Force Caucus.
“From supporting military readiness to leading the charge in human space exploration, Texas has played a dynamic role in civil, commercial, and defense collaboration in the aerospace industry,” said Babin. “The U.S. Space Force is considering the next location for STARCOM, and we believe the Lone Star State should be at the top of the list.”
