Florida Today Updates Obama Space Conference

Florida Today has a couple articles today on KSC's space program.

Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson had an "excellent conversation" with President Obama about the agenda for the upcoming April 15 space conference.

Near the end of the article is a brief cryptic quote from Space Florida President and CEO Frank DiBello:

"We do see a lot of good in the president's budget," said Frank DiBello, president of Space Florida.

Hopefully that means that Brevard's space leaders are taking a more sober and less hysterical look at Obama's proposal.

Florida Today also reports that "work force and aerospace industry officials plan to establish a team to help coordinate their response to the waves of space-related layoffs expected this year."

Considering that President Bush cancelled the Shuttle program in January 2004, it would have been nice if this response had started a few years ago, but better late than never I suppose.
