ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 919, Space Frontier Act of 2019   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Bill Summary: "S. 919 would authorize appropriations for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to promote commercial use of the low-Earth orbit and for the Department of Commerce to carry out space commerce activities. (Low-Earth orbit is an Earth centered orbit with an altitude of about 1,200 miles or less.) The bill also would require the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to streamline permitting for commercial space transportation and Earth observation. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates implementing S. 919 would cost $232 million over the 2019- 2024 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized and necessary amounts."
