SpaceX is making big headlines this week, after the announcement that the rocket launch site is coming to Brownsville.

The Brownsville Economic Development Council says it is fully supporting the project, while at the same time, going after more to boost and change Brownsville's economic landscape for good.

BEDC Executive VP Gilberto Salinas stated, "Do we want to settle with this one project we have and I don't mean that in a bad way, being productive and going after a lot of these companies, you know they have clusters in California as well as in the East Coast to Southeast, start knocking on some doors."

As for the new launch site, Executive VP of the BEDC believes we will see dirt moving in the next few weeks, if not sooner.
