SpaceX continues to expand its property investments in Cameron County amid a commitment of $15 million from the state, and other legislation aimed at luring the space exploration firm to Texas.
The firm now owns eight lots in Cameron County. The most recent purchases were made in May, the Valley Morning Star found.
“That’s music to my ears,” state Sen. Eddie Lucio Jr. said Thursday of continuing land purchases by Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or SpaceX.
“I’m happy to know that SpaceX is purchasing property if they are trying to finalize the location where the operations will take place,” the senator added.
