Florida Passes Bills Promoting Space Industry

Space Politics reports on four bills passed through the Florida Legislature:

"SB 2526 supports the development of an initiative to diversify the state’s space industry. SB 2458 would create a “Space and Aerospace Development Infrastructure Enhancement Fund”. SB 2666 would include “space flight contractors” into an existing tax refund program for defense contractors. The fourth bill, SB 2426, is described in the Florida Today article above as providing $15 million to 'refurbish a launch complex at Kennedy Space Center'."
