The governors of Alabama and Mississippi plan to try to rally support for a plan to turn a four-state region along the Gulf of Mexico into an Aerospace Alliance.
The Mobile Press Register reports that Alabama Governor Bob Riley is set to appear Monday at Faulkner State Community College in Bay Minette, where he will be joined by Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour via satellite.
They plan to launch a 501(c)(6) organization designed to create a world-class aerospace, space and aviation corridor from Panama City, Florida, to Louisiana.
The organization would allow business, economic development, government and civic leaders to combine resources, funds and manpower for lobbying efforts, according to organizers.
