Governor urges lawmakers to pass bill exempting liability for space parts firms
mar 5, 2013

ALBUQUERQUE — Negotiations to lock space tourism company Virgin Galactic into a long-term lease at the spaceport New Mexico taxpayers built for it are on hold while a proposal to broaden liability exemptions for space companies lingers in the Legislature, Gov. Susana Martinez said Tuesday.

[Virgin Galactic President and CEO George Whitesides] hinted last year that the company could leave New Mexico if lawmakers failed for a second year to pass a bill that would extend legal liability exemptions to space parts suppliers. He and the governor have both said the legislation, which would protect companies from lawsuits by passengers on spaceflights, is necessary for New Mexico to compete with states like Texas, Florida and Colorado, which already have the exemption on the books and are developing their own spaceports.
