“The Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies bill before us meets this moment for the families and communities we represent. For far too long the American economy has left the vulnerable, middle class, and small businesses behind. And the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have left many hard-working Americans struggling to get by. That is why I am proud that this bill supports small businesses, including manufacturers, and creates good-paying jobs."

With our funding bills this year, we will invest in the American people: creating good-paying jobs, growing opportunity, and providing a lifeline to the middle class, working families, small businesses, and the vulnerable."

"In the coming years, America can create jobs and grow a truly innovative industry by fostering the commercial space economy. By some estimates, commercial space could be a one trillion-dollar market by 2040, but only if we continue to invest in our workforce and the industrial base that will build the equipment and infrastructure."
