      Boca Chica Beach is that much closer to becoming the next commercial space launch site after representatives met on Wednesday.

      A final vote from the Texas House of Representatives is expected on Thursday regarding the SpaceX Bill.

      The bill cleared unanimously with the representatives and is expected to be heard again on Thursday.

      The bill will then head to the Senate for consideration.

      Although Space X has not made a decision as to where the launch pad will end up, State Representative Rene Oliveira said, Cameron County and Brownsville are committed to bringing Space X to South Texas.
