One piece of the Trump administration will survive into the Biden era, but likely with a different twist.
On Saturday, the Biden administration announced that the National Space Council would remain with Vice President Kamala Harris at its chairwoman, according to Axios.
The council started under former President George H.W. Bush, who created it with a 1990 executive order that included it being chaired by the vice president, according to Politico.
During the Trump administration, the council was chaired by Vice President Mike Pence.
“The council’s basic objectives — national security, basic science, technological development, contributions to U.S. economic growth and the commercial sector — will all be maintained,” a senior administration official said Saturday in a call to the media announcing the Harris appointment, according to Axios.
“To that, I would just want to add that the vice president also intends to put her own personal stamp on the council.”
