Florida RLV Bill at Governor's Desk

RLV News has the latest status on the Florida bill that includes an RLV prize.

Bill would light a fire under Florida's economy - advocates that Governor Crist sign the bill, which has a provision for a $20M/$20M public/private funded RLV prize. (Any comment I might make on who would step up on the private side would be pure speculation). As you can see in this post from May 2, I couldn't tell whether or not this version or the House version with a much smaller public contribution was being carried forward.

You can see the latest status here. The latest activity happened a few days ago:
