(WESH) A congressional subcommittee is in Central Florida trying to speed up the process of turning unused space facilities into job-creating private businesses. 

Florida Congressman John Mica's panel met at the Kennedy Space Center on Monday.

Private industry could make use of a pair of old trailers built to carry space shuttle fuel tanks. 

The trailers are sitting unused at the moment, but it's the buildings and hangars that can be converted to private use.
