Cape Canaveral Brings in Big Bucks for Florida

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (970 WFLA/ AP)- A new study says Port Canaveral generated $2 billion in economic impact for the space coast community last year.

The study results shows that the Port generates 17,000 jobs, and its businesses produce annual tax revenue of $74.3 million.

During the past two decades, the Port has become a hub for cruise ships, and it's Central Florida's primary outlet to the sea for cargo.

The study was commissioned by Port Canaveral and conducted by a Pennsylvania firm.
