AIA: NASA Authorization Bill Propels American Leadership in Space Forward

Statement by Aerospace Industries Association President and CEO Eric Fanning

Arlington, Va. — The introduction of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Authorization Act of 2020 is a vital part of supporting and sustaining American leadership in space and aeronautics.

“NASA is a critically important organization that is leading us into the future. It not only conducts cutting-edge research, but also drives our economy and inspires the next generation of American workers,” said AIA President and CEO Eric Fanning. “But none of this is possible without the passage of an authorization bill. Thank you, Chairwoman Kendra Horn, for your leadership in putting forth this legislation. We remain committed to working with Congress to pass a NASA authorization bill this year.”
