CAC Progress Report # 15

October 6, 1998

CAC Members, friends, and associates,

House OKs Private Space Launches

On Monday, the United States House of Representatives passed a bill, #
H. Res. 572, that will allow private U.S. companies to send reusable
launch vehicles into space.

Pending approval by the U.S. Senate, The Department of Transportation
will be authorized to license U.S. companies to conduct commercial
space activities.

It is estimated that the formal enactment of this bill will initiate
an era of unparalleled economic opportunity and growth for the
American economy.

Call your senator today. Urge them to vote YES on H. Res. 572.


Thank you for your continued interest in this important project.
