Florida House approves some state space incentives

Florida Today reports that the state’s House of Representatives have final approval Monday to legislation that would provide $50 million incentives for the state’s space industry, as well as consolidate the state’s numerous space-related agencies into a single organization. However, the House rejected several amendments by one Space Coast-area legislator, Bob Allen, who tried to increase the size of the incentives (he has offered a proposal for $500 million in incentives, with half the money coming from labor unions), and address some issues associated with the merger of the agencies. While the House rejected the amendments, they’re expected to come up again in the state Senate.
