Florida Seeks Virginia-like Spaceflight Liability and Immunity Law in 2008
The Space Politics blog notes that the Florida state legislature is endeavoring to pursue passage of legislation to provide immunity from liability from a space flight mishap similar to what was enacted in Virginia one year ago. If passed, Florida would be the second state in the nation to provide a pro-commercial space launch law [limiting lability]. behind Virginia. Space advocates are discussing prospects for spaceflight liability immunity legislation in the California legislature as well.
