JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Cecil Field is one giant step closer to outer space.
The Florida House is close to passing a bill that would give tax breaks to space tourism-related companies operating at Cecil Field, our newsgathering partner The Florida Times-Union reports.
The bill is sponsored by local Rep. Lake Ray and would designated Cecil Field as a "spaceport territory" at the state level.
Cecil Field is the Navy's former master jet base and was made the country's eighth designated horizontal launch commercial spaceport.
