Senator Diane Feinstein and Representative Salud Carbajal are demanding clarification after Vandenberg Air Force Base was not selected as the future location for Space Command headquarters.

VAFB was a top three finalist in the selection process, now lawmakers want to know what disqualified the base.

“Vandenberg already offers a highly-qualified workforce for aerospace engineering, and the local community is eager to welcome Space Command to the area,” wrote Feinstein and Carbajal.

“We respectfully request that you provide us with specific information about Vandenberg’s scores in each of the evaluation factors and their criteria, including relative to other bases.”
