Gov. Scott to Sign Bill Helping Space Florida Access Dollars


Gov. Rick Scott will sign a bill expected to make it easier for Space Florida to access state and federal transportation money to improve launch facilities.

A ceremony for the signing of Senate Bill 634, sponsored by Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto, R-Fort Myers, and Rep. Ritch Workman, R-Melbourne, is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Thursday in the governor’s office.

Scott has proposed $15 million in state transportation money for spaceport infrastructure improvements.

The Florida Chamber, which has included spaceport facilities as a priority for the session, has estimated the space industry generated $17.8 billion a year in economic impact across Florida.

This is just another example of our politicians working for us! Great Job Rep. Ritch Workman. I'm sure more people will begin to understand just how hard you work for us Brevardians.
