Last Friday, Gov. Nathan Deal pitched Georgia and its 4,000-acre site to SpaceX founder and noted entrepreneur Elon Musk. State and local economic development officials are considering possible inducements — free land, job-creation incentives, equipment and machinery tax breaks, workforce training — to persuade Musk.

This is a new and significant development since the executive and legislative branches of the state government were reluctant to get involved prior to the Environmental Impact Study being complete. Apparently the spectre of Texas being in the lead prompted some action. Texas may still have something Georgia doesn't which is the ability for a first stage to take off from Texas and land in Florida.

Keep you fingers crossed!
