Task Force Website Seeks Comments

Looking for Ideas to Promote Florida Space Coast Employment

Task Force Website Seeks Comments The Task Force on Space Industry Workforce and Economic Development has launched an interactive website to encourage public comment on ways to promote economic growth and sustainability in Florida's Space Coast region as it adapts to changes in America's space program. 

According to NASA, the site offers "information about the work the administration is doing to create jobs in the region by fostering a more supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem."

On May 3, President Brack Obama issued a presidential memorandum establishing the task force, which is co-chaired by NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke. The task force's mission is to "develop an interagency strategic action plan to enhance economic development along Florida's Space Coast and related areas." The task force will review all input.
