"New" ... no. While there is money appropriated for the funding of AFSPACE, to fund USSPACECOM would be a redirect of current execution year funds ... which Congress must okay.

Also, stand up of a new O5, O6 up to O8 level command is something DoD can do autonomously. O9, O10 standup requires Congressional approval.
