Polis- Primavera Administration continues to advocate for Colorado Springs as the home for U.S. Space Command  

DENVER — Today, Governor Polis and Lt. Governor Primavera released the following statement in response to the release of the Department of Defense Office of the Inspector General report on the former President’s decision to move the U.S. Space Command from its rightful home at Peterson Space Force Base in Colorado Springs. 

“We’ve been advocating since day one that Colorado Springs is the rightful home for U.S. Space Command. Colorado is the epicenter of national security space and Peterson Space Force Base continues to execute critical missions in the space domain vital to our national security,” said Gov. Polis and Lt. Gov. Primavera. “We will review the report thoroughly, and continue to question the merits of this decision by the former President.”
