Spaceport Camden has ramped-up the Space Industry BS-factor. 

Camden County just promoted a report, based entirely on speculation, about the prospects of tourism related to Spaceport Camden.

First, consider the source of Camden's report:

Ben McKay, the Assistant Director of Research at Georgia Southern University, is quoted in the press release.

McKay's boss is Dominique Halaby, Director of Georgia Southern University’s Business...

The FAA’s new schedule for Spaceport Camden means the ultimate decisions about licensing will be made in a Federal Courtroom rather than by the Federal Agency responsible for public safety and the environment.

The FAA still does not accept that their regulations were written and revised many times (as recently as 2016) with the default assumption that rocket launchpads would be ocean-fronting and that US citizens would be prot...

While many Camden County businesses hang on for life, spaceport consultants and lobbyists haven’t missed a beat taking our money. Commissioners feed tens of thousands of our tax dollars every month to the same guys who have failed for the past five years.

Spaceport Camden officials chose to hide the FAA's notice that 16 more months of expenses and "consulting" are required. (Link to Schedule)

Even then, the FAA warns that no rocket launches are assured:
