The county will partner with the Federal Aviation Authority to evaluate the potential costs and benefits of subsidizing the development of a multi-million dollar spaceport.

As officials contemplate spending millions of tax dollars on this new facility, we must take our head out of the clouds and impartially evaluate the project’s true costs and benefits.
