This is the February 4, 2014 hearing on "Necessary Updates to the Commercial Space Launch Act" held before the Subcommittee on Space, Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, House of Representatives. From the charter: "The industry has grown over the years since the passage of the Commercial Space Launch Act of 1984 (P.L. 98-575) thirty years ago, and this law has been amended several times since then. The Commercial Space Launch Act (CSLA) provides authority to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to license launches and indemnify launch providers from third-party claims should an accident occur. The law also provides a framework for the FAA's regulatory authority. This hearing will examine the various changes in the industry and what, if any, accompanying changes to the Commercial Space Launch Act may be needed going forward." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: George Nield, Alicia Cackley, and Henry Hertzfeld.
