(Tribune News Service) — Colorado U.S. Sens. Michael Bennet and John Hickenlooper met with Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall and implored him to review the findings of two agencies regarding President Donald Trump's decision to move U.S. Space Command from Colorado to Alabama.

The recently released reports from the Pentagon's Office of Inspector General and the Government Accountability Office "affirm our doubts about the accuracy and credibility of the decision-making process," the senators said in a news release.

Senior military leaders have identified Peterson Space Force Base in Colorado Springs as their preferred choice for the headquarters of the Space Command as it can reach full operational capability (FOC) faster than other locations, the senators noted.
