Alabama eyes spaceport

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Alabama lawmakers are looking at the possibility of establishing a commercial spaceport somewhere in the state. Legislators from Alabama's state Senate and House of Representatives met in the joint committee room to announce they would introduce joint resolutions to set up a nine-member panel to look at creating a spaceport authority. That authority could then apply for approval to build a spaceport. (Source: multiple, including AP via Montgomery Advertiser, Birmingham News, WHNT-TV, 03/03/12)
