President Donald Trump issued Space Policy Directive-4 Tuesday night officially calling for the establishment of the sixth branch of the military, the United States Space Force.

On Wednesday Utah Representative Rob Bishop issued this statement in support of the president’s decision:

“This is a logical step forward using the military branch that makes sense. It will enhance our military dominance. I will work with Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson to demonstrate the integral role that Hill AFB is poised to play given the thriving space and defense industry in northern Utah.”

Rep. Rob Bishop (R) Utah

Bishop is a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee and the Strategic Forces & Readiness subcommittee.
