AIA President & CEO: NASA Authorization Bill is Critical to American Leadership in Space

Arlington, Va. — Today, Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) President and CEO Eric Fanning released the following statement applauding the U.S. Senate’s passage of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Authorization Act of 2020:

“This bill reinforces the multiyear bipartisan consensus for a balanced NASA portfolio of science, technology, and exploration programs in low Earth orbit, back to the Moon, and on to Mars. It will help develop and shape the STEM workforce that will power American innovation. And it will help transform the way our world travels by supporting revolutionary aeronautics research. We must harness the momentum of this strong authorization act in the next Congress and administration, ensuring America’s continued leadership in space and aeronautics for years to come.”
