Lawmakers geek out over Washington state's rising space industry

December 11, 2015View for printing

Washington state legislators got an introduction to the state's space industry today at Seattle's Museum of Flight - and voiced amazement at how much is going on.

"I feel so illiterate in this field, it's unbelievable," state Sen. Mike Hewitt, R-Walla Walla, remarked at one point during today's meeting of the Legislative Committee on Economic Development and International Relations. Afterward, Hewitt said he knew "100 percent" more about the field than he did at the start of the hearing.
