           SUBJECT:   California Aerospace Week


          SOURCE:    Author


          DIGEST:  This resolution recognizes the contributions of the  
          aerospace industry by proclaiming the week of March 23-March 27,  
          2015, as California Aerospace Week.


          ANALYSIS:   This resolution makes the following legislative  
          findings:


          1.The California aerospace industry directly employs more than  
            203,000 people in California and supports more than 511,000  
            jobs in related fields resulting in $2.9 billion in annual  
            state income tax revenues.


          2.The California aerospace industry leads the United States in  
            aerospace and defense services, including the design and  
            manufacture of aircraft, spacecraft, and commercial  
            satellites, as well as a myriad of systems and instruments for

                                                                     Page  2



            search, detection, navigation, guidance, and radio and  
            television broadcast and wireless communication systems.


          3.California is home to three NASA research and engineering  
            centers and to many superb sites of air and space activity  
            including, among others, Mojave Air and Spaceport.

          4.California has led the nation in firsts in human and robotic  
            space exploration.  It has also led the nation in aeronautical  
            firsts and California's aerospace industry produced many of  
            the significant and record-breaking aircraft that are now  
            represented in the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and  
            Space Museum.  


          5.Sally Kristen Ride, Ph.D., who was born in California, stands  
            in history as a pioneer in space exploration and academia, and  
            serves as a role model for others, by virtue of having been  
            the first American woman and the youngest person to go into  
            space when she traveled aboard the Challenger spacecraft on  
            June 18, 1983.


          6.California will continue to lead in aerospace education,  
            through its superb science, technology, engineering, and  
            mathematics education programs and at its world-class research  
            universities, and thus will continue to lead the world with  
            the innovation that enabled advanced meteorological  
            forecasting, the Global Positioning System, NextGen tools for  
            air traffic management, green aviation, sophisticated wind  
            tunnels and test facilities, and advanced supercomputing and  
            robotics.


          This resolution recognizes the contributions of the aerospace  
          industry to the history, economy, security, and educational  
          system of California, its communities, and its citizens by  
          proclaiming the week of March 23-March 27, 2015, as California  
          Aerospace Week.
