Upcoming House hearing on space tourism policy

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday (subscription required) that the House Science Committee will hold a hearing next week on legislation for regulations covering commercial human spaceflight—space tourism. The hearing, most likely to take place Wednesday—although there is nothing yet about on the committee’s web site—will cover legislation designed to amend existing law on commercial space policy. Although Congressman Dana Rohrabacher introduced legislation last year (HR3245) to cover some of these issues, sources say the hearing will be used to discuss a revised version of the legislation.
