Carter Leads Georgia Delegation Support for Spaceport Camden

Led by Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.), every member of the U.S. House of Representatives from the state of Georgia expressed their support for Spaceport Camden. 

In a letter to Federal Aviation Administration Acting Administrator Dan Elwell, the delegation wrote, "we write in support of Camden County's application for a Launch Site Operator's License under the Office of Commercial Space Transportation. The Spaceport Camden project is extremely important to the economic future of coastal Georgia and marks the beginning of an excellent opportunity to leverage the research and expertise present in the region. 

"Spaceport Camden would be the only non-federal range on the East Coast and a major component of the National Space Strategy by providing additional launch capacity for the commercial space industry. As the needs of commercial space continue to grow, development of projects such as this can ensure American companies remain world leaders in space technology. Spaceport Camden, through its location and latitude, provides a unique site to meet the needs of East Coast spaceport users."
