It seems from sources that main White House force behind the idea of appointing Kendra Horn to be Executive Secretary of the National Space Council is Cedric Richmond, Senior Advisor and Director of the Office of Public Engagement. But why, you may ask, is he (or anyone else in the White House) making a previously apolitical position into a political one when much more qualified professionals could have been considered? I am now starting to hear doubts and disturbance in The Force emerge up within the White House/Space bubble that the Kendra Horn thing may not necessarily be a done deal after all. Not everyone inside the space bubble is happy about this. No formal press statement from the Vice President's office has been issued - yet. So stay tuned.

Kendra Horn should be kept far away from space policy

Quote
The floated appointment of ex-Rep. Kendra Horn to serve as the Executive Secretary of the National Space Council is another matter altogether. If the Nelson nomination raised eyebrows, the proposed Horn appointment has caused dismay. In her one term in Congress, Horn was the lead sponsor of H.R. 5666, what would have been the most damaging space legislation in decades. The bill envisioned the entire Artemis program proceeding along the old, expensive contracting model. It would have been a giveaway to Boeing in particular.

Specifically, H.R. 5666 would have required Artemis to use the Space Launch System and the Exploration Upper Stage, both primarily developed by Boeing, and to create a government-owned lunar lander integrated into the Orion capsule, an expensive undertaking which only Boeing has proposed. It would have bypassed the in-development Lunar Gateway, on which Boeing is notably not a contractor. And it would have required an increase in production and crewed flight rate of the Space Launch System to two per year. No wonder that when Horn lost her re-election race in November, Boeing suggested her as a nominee for NASA Administrator.

Even Democratic members on the House Science Committee opposed H.R. 5666 moving to full committee markup unless she allowed significant changes to the anti-commercial provisions. She refused to compromise with members of her own party to improve the bill, which led to a year-long standoff and, ultimately, the bill’s death. Her take-it-or-leave approach to policy making demonstrates a lack of diplomatic and management skills required for the role of Executive Secretary.

A little PSA since the rumor keeps percolating, former Congresswoman Kendra Horn says she has not received an appointment to be executive secretary of the National Space Council.

VP wants more diversity in the National Space Council’s industry advisory group

Quote from: SpaceNews
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — A notice could appear in the Federal Register as early as next week seeking nominations for the National Space Council’s industry advisory group, the council’s executive secretary Chirag Parikh said Sept. 9.

Speaking at the Satellite 2021 conference, Parikh said the call for nominations for the Users Advisory Group will stay open through the end of the month. “When you see the notice come out, please follow the instructions,” he said.

The Users Advisory Group (UAG) is made up of private sector executives who advise the government. There are currently 27 UAG members. Parikh said the council intends to keep the group within 15 to 30 members. He did not elaborate on what will happen to current members or how many of them might be replaced.

Who’s in Charge of US Space Policy?
Space professionals worry the National Space Council is ceding its defense portfolio.

VP Harris will hold a Space Council meeting on Friday afternoon in Oakland, CA re the commercial space sector.  Will be livestreamed on the White House website. It's one of two events she'll hold that day. Don't have the exact time yet.

Which is to say this was described to me as a Space Council meeting, but the VP's schedule just calls it an "event."
I've heard that reps of FCC, FAA, NASA and DOC/OSP, plus seven companies involved in cmrcl LEO activities (space stations, ISAM, remote sensing etc) were invited.

Bottom line: need to update regs/rules to maintain US ldrship in space bc current rules written fordifferent century. Which is pretty much what FCC Chair Rosenworcel said last wk: "new space age needs new rules."
