Space Foundation Issues U.S. Congressional Midterm Election ResultsCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Nov. 3, 2010) — Today the Space Foundation issued a comprehensive run-down of election results showing all the members of Congress who have a space-related constituency and/or sit on a committee that has some jurisdiction on space policy. Prepared by the Research and Analysis branch of the Space Foundation based in Washington, D.C., this is a follow-up to a pre-election version issued a few weeks ago.

There are still some races undeclared and the Space Foundation will track those and update as available. Also, the report explains that even though someone replaces a person who sat on a space-related committee, it does not automatically mean they will get the same committee assignment. Those decisions will be made over the coming months and the Space Foundation will track and inform on those decisions as well.
