A Discussion of Federal-State Policies/Programs on Space Launch, Aerospace Competitiveness, and STEM
March 20, 2012
Space capabilities are woven deeply into the fabric of modern society. Commerce relies on them for the swift flow of information and transactions, and the national security arena depends on them for joint war fighting and protection of the homeland.
State governments are increasingly attuned to these developments and are constructing policies and programs to encourage and facilitate space and aerospace activities.
The Marshall Institute is pleased to have worked with the Aerospace States Association, the organization of Lieutenant Governors and state appointed delegates formed to promote a state-based perspective in federal aerospace policy, on their 2012 Policy Meeting held on March 20 in Washington, DC.
