Bertuccia Legislature Passes Commercial Spaceflight Revival Act

Suderia. The Bertuccian Senate passed this morning the Commercial Spaceflight Revival Act, clearing the way for the Governor to sign the bill later this week. The bill had already been passed by the House of Delegates in mid January, but encountered fierce debate in the Senate, where there were doubts about the need to encourage commercial spaceflight. If signed, the bill would establish an executive department tasked with promoting the commercial spaceflight industry in Bertuccia. Once thriving, the industry stalled in the 1990s, as focus switched to Station Artemia and other government-led initiatives.
