Brooks Joins Launch of NASA Caucus as Founding Member
Washington, DC – This week, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) announced the establishment of the bipartisan House National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Caucus led by Representatives Steve Knight (CA-25) and Marcy Kaptur (OH-09). Congressman Brooks is a founding member of the caucus. The caucus will bring attention to NASA’s economic and national security importance and serve as a forum to educate policymakers on current NASA initiatives.
Congressman Brooks said, “It is an honor to serve as the Congressman representing the Tennessee Valley, home to Alabama’s Marshall Space Flight Center – one of NASA’s largest field installations with nearly 6,000 civil service and contract employees. Without the contributions of the dedicated engineers, scientists, and other talented professionals we would be unable to inspire the next generation with the dream of continued space exploration. I am excited to report that there is a renewed commitment to space exploration on Capitol Hill and you can feel the excitement. The recently launched NASA Caucus will help bring to the forefront NASA’s most important endeavors, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to further America’s global leadership in space.”
Congressman Brooks joins 27 colleagues and founding members of the caucus: Steve Knight (CA), Marcy Kaptur (OH), Brian Babin (TX), André Carson (IN), Kathy Castor (FL), Jim Costa (CA), Barbara Comstock (VA), Charlie Crist (FL), Debbie Dingell (MI), Anna Eshoo (CA), Al Hastings (FL), Bill Johnson (OH), David Joyce (OH), Ro Khanna (CA), Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO), Zoe Lofgren (CA), Ralph Norman (SC), Pete Olson (TX), Steven Palazzo (MS), Ed Perlmutter (CO), Bill Posey (FL), Jamie Raskin (MD), Dana Rohrabacher (CA), Linda T.
