Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding today’s event at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station announcing Blue Origin’s major investment in Florida’s commercial space launch industry:
“Congratulations to Jeff Bezos and Blue Origin on this accomplishment and for investing in Florida’s continued leadership role in space exploration. By attracting Blue Origin to Cape Canaveral, Florida strengthens its position as a leader in the 21st century innovation economy.  We’ve got to make sure all of our policies keep pace with the faith Jeff Bezos and others continue to show in our state’s future. Policy makers at all levels of government need to make sure America continues to be the best place in the world to do business, that innovation across all industries is allowed to flourish and that our education system is revolutionized to help equip our people for the new jobs that are coming. This is a great day for our nation’s space program, for Florida’s space coast, for our state as a whole, and we’re proud to welcome native Floridian Jeff Bezos home to launch us into the future like this.”
