BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - The governors of Alabama and
Mississippi plan to try to rally support for a plan to turn a
four-state region along the Gulf of Mexico into an Aerospace
Alliance.

The Mobile Press Register reports that Alabama Gov. Bob Riley is
set to appear Monday at Faulkner State Community College in Bay
Minette, where he will be joined by Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour
via satellite.

They plan to launch a 501(c)(6) organization designed to create
a world-class aerospace, space and aviation corridor from Panama
City, Fla., to Louisiana.

The organization would allow business, economic development,
government and civic leaders to combine resources, funds and
manpower for lobbying efforts, according to organizers.
