SANTA FE — When I suggested in a recent column that Spaceport America might be a good location for the $1 billion research ghost town a one-man international development company is promoting, I was only half serious.
It does seem that New Mexico’s much-heralded spaceport could be on its last legs Gov. Susana Martinez and the New Mexico Legislature work very hard in the next few months to keep it.
Some very exciting offers have been made to Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic by some deep-pocketed suitors.
Virgin Galactic now says it was sold a bill of goods when former Gov. Bill Richardson painted a picture of Virgin being the center of a thriving spaceport. After several years, Virgin remains the only tenant at the site.
Meanwhile the trial-lawyer laden Legislature appears far from granting the limited supplier liability protection our competition is offering and Gov. Martinez is acting as though she would rather be pursued by Branson instead of her pursuing his business.
