The incumbent chief of the House space subcommittee has expressed interest in retaking the new leadership position in the United States of America. Kendra Horn has been chairing the House’s space subcommittee and hopes to retain this one role after losing her reelection proceedings in the House Armed Services Committee. This loss opened a path for her candidacy to be NASA’s administrator for the Biden administration.

Last week, Horn said that she would assume any role that the new administration offers her in connection to space operations. She reiterated that it would be an honor to her if the new administration takes her to channel her experience and advice to the space industry.

She replied to the media that she would enthusiastically take a role in NASA to expand her knowledge on space operations and offer expertise experience after her studies on Moon to Mars. Horn’s early life metered around the Space Foundation, and she is hopeful of gaining access and getting involved once again in space operations. She retorted that the next dearest thing she desires is to work in programs that involve space and matters national security.

Furthermore, Horn championed the redressing of vital aspects of the NASA bill that resolved the looming failure of the Artemis program dedicated to deploying astronauts to the moon. Nevertheless, the bill is still undergoing legal frameworks after the coronavirus pandemic slowing its smooth procession. Horn explained that it would be inconsiderate for the bill to dive since it addresses some vital points that the Artemis program is in dire need of. Nevertheless, she is hopeful that the incoming lawmakers can succeed and optimize its success in the space industry.

Horn is uncertain if a similar version of the Senate’s bill will find its way to Congress. The full Senate was expected to pass this bill into law, but unprecedented delays halted it for some time. Furthermore, Horn is skeptical that the House would accept the bill due to some indifferences they are yet to address. Horn expects the bills to be made laws in the fastest time to meet the demands that the Artemis program would want to be addressed.

Another bill with the same controversies is the space traffic management bill. The bill articulates that the handling and control of debris deployment in space would become the Department of Commerce task. It is doubtful that this bill would be approved by the two legislative bodies begging for an intervention by the Biden administration. To conclude, Horn hopes that these bills can spark an agreement between the Democrats and the Republicans to implement the policies for space programs and operations to work efficiently.
