DOD to Propose Placing Space Force under Air Force

A newly created Space Force would fall under the Department of the Air Force rather than become an independent department, under a draft legislative proposal being circulated within the Pentagon. DOD intends to submit the proposal to Congress in February along with its fiscal 2020 budget request. The new service would be overseen by a newly created undersecretary of the Air Force and a Space Force chief of staff, who would sit on the Joint Chiefs, reports Defense News.
