National Space Council Issues Its Greatest Hits

National Space Council Releases Report on Space Policy Accomplishments

"Over the past four years, it has been my great privilege to serve as chair of the National Space Council, and I am proud of the tremendous progress our Administration has made to advance U.S. national space power," said Vice President Mike Pence. "With a revived National Space Council at the helm of a whole-of-government approach, the Trump Administration has successfully aligned American space policies, programs, and budgets with enduring national interests. The U.S. Government has fostered close coordination, cooperation, and technology and information exchange to give the American space enterprise a new vision, direction, and confidence."
