NASA could reduce federal funds to Florida small businesses

NASA has proposed a new policy that could slash the volume of federal contract dollars going to small businesses in Florida, the organization said.

NASA Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative policy could have a negative impact on the state´s economy. The aerospace industry is a major source of jobs and federal contracts in Florida but that could change if the new NASA policy is adopted.

The American Small Business League (ASBL) has launched a national campaign to oppose the policy proposed by NASA, the Pentagon and the General Services Administration (GSA).
