Florida Cuts KSC, CCAFS Infrastructure Funding

Florida Today reports, "An anticipated $15 million in annual state funding to upgrade Brevard County’s space launch facilities — and create aerospace jobs — may fall victim to the budget ax."

The Florida Department of Transportation’s draft work program for 2013-17 omitted this space-infrastructure funding. Potential projects include revamping launch complexes 40 and 46 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station for commercial uses ...

In July, the [Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization] requested funding for a list of projects including work on the Air Force launch pads, NASA Orbiter Processing Facility upgrades, commercial heavy-lift launch complex work, and hangar improvements at the Shuttle Landing Facility.
