Up to now, Representative Suzanne Kosmas has insisted that the federal government continue Shuttle and Constitution rather than doing anything to diversify the Space Coast local economy to avoid the impact of layoffs related to the end of government space programs.
Today's USA Today reports that Kosmas claims to have "some very hot prospects" to bring new commercial space and alternate energy companies to Brevard County. She didn't say who they are.
But Kosmas still insists that Shuttle and Constellation continue, reality be damned. "I want to have my cake and eat it, too," Florida Today quoted Kosmas as saying.
Nothing was said about whether Representative Bill Posey, Brevard's other member of Congress, is doing anything to bring non-government jobs to the Space Coast.
