State spaceport initiatives: Economic and political innovation in an intergovernmental context
Abbreviated Journal Title
Stale spaceports are an interesting example of intergovernmental relations because activities conducted at such facilities span the state, federal, and international realms. Five states-Alaska, California Florida, New Mexico, and Virginia-are the most visible participants in the process. In this study, the supporting rationales for such endeavors are discussed within the context of the broader contours of intergovernmental relations. The field is a product of the post-Cold War period during which opportunities for state space activities arose due to changes in the national security environment. Three distinct but interrelated explanations are suggested for why the field has developed slowly, although during the past two years, progress in achieving goals has begun to occur.
