All roads to a hopeful future in space go through cheap access to space." The National Coalition for CATS, working with leading figures across the space community, will collaborate over the next 12 weeks to develop a "National Declaration for Cheap and reliable Access to Space." The CEOs of non-profit and for-profit companies will be invited to sign the Declaration, and will deliver this declaration to the next President of the U.S. after the November election. Michael Heil, president and CEO of the Ohio Aerospace Institute, stated, "The next President of the United States needs to know that Ohio is an aerospace state that cares about growing the aerospace economy, and new high-wage aerospace jobs. Radically lower cost space access will enable rapid growth in existing markets, and create entire new industries. CATS will help create new high-wage jobs in the state of Ohio and for the rest of America."
