Senate Armed Services Committee Chair John McCain (R-AZ) spoke on the Senate floor against a part of the proposed omnibus budget bill that would lift the ban on Russian-made rocket engines. He talked about Russia’s recent belligerent activities in the Baltics and Eastern Europe, framing it as a national security issue.

Later, Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) responded to Senator McCain’s remarks. Senator Durbin explained that the lifting of the ban would allow for greater competition amongst aerospace companies, and warned that unless the ban was lifted the U.S. would come to use just one company, Space X, who would have a monopoly. close
