95% of this is directing NASA to develop feasibility studies and plans. And not boring plans, but really cool plans. I would image that agency is bursting with people dying to flesh out their pet proposals, especially missions to Mars. If NASA isn't already supporting and encouraging proposals from such a motivated workforce as theirs, then it has cultural and organizational problems with initiative that congressional micromanaging won't fix. The icing on the cake is the other 5%. Directing the president to develop a national security plan is appropriate, as there are overlapping authorities to coordinate. I have a problem with setting up a new DOT component for space. That's an inexorable step in establishing regulatory jurisdiction and control over the new frontier, something that will kill our future in space faster than if you defunded NASA entirely. Give Commerce a role to boot, and failure is guaranteed.
