The state's leading agency dedicated to promoting the aerospace industry is no more.
Janice Dunn, former Deputy Director of the California Space Authority, tells KSBY News the CSA has begun the dissolution process. It will cease operations effective today.
Dunn says at the time of dissolution, there were three employees left. They have all lost their jobs.
It's not only the Space Authority that the Central Coast is losing. The CSA was in the process of bidding on land in Lompoc to build the California Space Center. Dunn says that in the past few months, the CSA lost about $5 million in federal funding for the project.
Dunn says the CSA sent a letter to Lompoc's Mayor on Wednesday, letting the city know that the CSA is stopping negotiations for land on which the Space Center would've been built.
