Biden To Keep Space Command In Colorado

The decision on the U.S. Space Command’s location has sparked a political feud in Washington between Alabama and Colorado lawmakers.

President Joe Biden has decided to keep the U.S. Space Command headquarters in Colorado Springs, reversing plans by the Trump administration to move the headquarters to Alabama.

“Today, following a thorough and deliberate evaluation process, and after consultation with (Defense) Secretary (Lloyd) Austin and weighing the input of senior military leaders, President Biden notified the Department of Defense that he has selected Colorado Springs as the permanent location of the U.S. Space Command Headquarters,” Pentagon press secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said in a statement.

The decision on the U.S. Space Command’s location has sparked a political feud in Washington between Alabama and Colorado lawmakers. Following news of the decision, Alabama lawmakers slammed the Biden administration for the decision.

“This fight is far from over,” Rep. Mike Rogers, chair of the House Armed Services Committee, said in a statement.

The Air Force originally recommended the headquarters remain in Colorado but changed its course following a meeting in the last week of President Donald Trump’s administration.

“Over the past two and half years, we have repeatedly made the case that the Trump administration’s decision to relocate U.S. Space Command was misguided. Today’s decision restores integrity to the Pentagon’s basing process and sends a strong message that national security and the readiness of our Armed Forces drive our military decisions,” Sen. Michael Bennet said in a statement.
