Space Tourism Bill Passes House of Representatives
Promotes passenger space travel
by Patrick Collins
On Thursday, March 4, 2004, the US House of Representatives approved legislation which is designed to promote the development of the emerging commercial human space flight industry.

H.R. 3752, The Commercial Space Launch Amendments Act of 2004, next goes to the Senate. If approved there it will put in place a regulatory regime to promote the passenger space travel industry while ensuring public safety.

The best way to regulate passenger space travel remains controversial, with some people favouring different legislation that would be based on aviation rules.

For legislators' comments on H.R. 3752, see the House of Representative's
press release.
