Governor Wants to Take Over Space Florida

An opinion article in Florida Today opposes Florida Governor Rick Scott's plan to take over Space Florida, the agency formed to attract business to the Space Coast.

The governor wants to consolidate the budgets of the state’s economic development and job- creation agencies that operate independently into one super agency, giving him control of as much as $427 million in combined funds to award as he pleases.

That’s too much power in Scott’s hands and raises the prospect of him making arbitrary decisions that hurt, not help, the state.
