VP Harris Announces US Will Update Commercial Space Regulations with Industry Input
Vice President Kamala Harris announced the United States plans to update commercial space regulations by working with the commercial space industry.
Harris announced the plan during a visit Friday at the Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland, California, where she also announced the next National Space Council meeting is set for Sept. 9.
Harris said regulations governing commercial space are “simply outdated,” she said. “They were written for a space industry of the last century.”
The White House plans to partner with regulatory agencies that work with the space industry and engage the private sector to develop a new rules framework.
Harris said this will be part of the discussion during the next National Space Council meeting in September.
“We will do this work to make sure our nation remains a role model for the responsible use of space, because we know we must keep pace with the tremendous rate of innovation.
“We know that we must write new rules that allow flexibility to incorporate the innovation that is occurring in real-time.”
