On Thursday, April 19, 2018, the Senate voted 50 to 49 to confirm Representative Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) as the new Administrator for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Representative Knight (R-CA), Co-Chairman of the House NASA Caucus, released the following statement:

"I want to congratulate Congressman Bridenstine on his appointment and confirmation as NASA Administrator. From his career as a Naval Aviator to serving the people of Oklahoma's 1st District, Jim has a long track record of leadership and courage. I've gotten to know him in the past few years from our time serving together on the House Science, Space, & Technology Committee and the House Armed Services Committee. I trust that Administrator Bridenstine will lead NASA with distinction and continue America's global leadership in research, technology, and exploration."
