Gov. Polis Welcomes Space Command Announcement

Governor Jared Polis welcomed an announcement today that Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs will be the provisional headquarters of U.S. Space Command for at least the next six years. The final decision will be in January 2021.

“This is great news for our state and I will continue urging the President and the Air Force to make Colorado the permanent home of U.S. Space Command. Colorado is home to a proud military community, a critical aerospace industry, an educated workforce, and prestigious research institutions so we are the natural and best home for U.S. Space Command,” said Gov. Polis.

Governor Polis met with the President this week to advocate for federal funding, and resources to help Colorado respond to COVID-19. The Governor previously met with the President in late February to advocate for Colorado as home to Space Command in Colorado Springs
