Texas Gov. Rick Perry has signed a new law that will allow officials to temporarily close Boca Chica Beach near Brownsville for launches of SpaceX’s Falcon rockets. (Adjacent to South Padre Island)


The California-based company is considering constructing a seaside commercial launch complex near the Mexican border. SpaceX also is looking at locations in Florida, Georgia and Puerto Rico.


The Texas site is currently considered to be the frontrunner in the competition, with the Federal Aviation Administration having already completed a positive environmental impact statement on the proposed location.


Under the law, the beach could not be closed on holidays or summer weekends. SpaceX has said it expects to launch about 12 times per year.
