Texas' Spaceport & Money
Texas provided about $20 million in direct incentives plus another $10 milion dollars indirectly to SpaceX in their decision to locate their private spaceport at Boca Chica near Brownsville. Work has already started at that site. SpaceX has its primary factory in Hawthorne, California where it is headquartered. Additionally, SpaceX has a rocket engine test facility at McGregor, a small satellite town near Waco. And Spacex is building its own private spaceport at Boca Chica near Brownsville.
XCOR received a $10 Million incentive deal from Midland Development Corp to relocate it's headquarters from California. An associated company also received a $7 million deal. XCOR plans to eventually launch a space tourism business from the Midland.
