Please plan to join us as we celebrate Sen. Richard Shelby's distinguished career of public service at a very special Washington Update Breakfast.
During his Congressional career, Sen. Shelby has arguably brought more to Alabama, and especially to Huntsville, than any previous member of Congress. After 36 years in the U.S. Senate and a total of 44 years in the U.S. Congress, he is concluding his career in the Congress.
Sen. Shelby has been the compelling force behind the move to locate a significant FBI presence at Redstone. He has been the staunchest advocate for NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center's role in space science, launch vehicle development and deep space exploration. And he has been a key proponent of our nation's military strength, including a large number of programs located in Alabama and at Redstone Arsenal.
