Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell (AL-07) released the following statement regarding the decision to keep U.S. Space Command Headquarters in Colorado.
“This Administration’s decision to keep Space Command in Colorado bows to the whims of politics over merit. Huntsville’s merits won this selection process fair and square. In three separate reports, Huntsville reigned victorious, whereas Colorado did not come in second or even third. This reversal is as shameful as it is disappointing.
I expected more from the Biden Administration. A decision of this magnitude should not be about red states versus blue states, but rather what is best for our national security.
To be clear, the Alabama Congressional Delegation stands united in opposition to this decision."
