Aerospace Advocacy for 2019

The Aerospace and Defense industry is at the heart of American security and the American economy. To ensure we stay at the forefront of innovation and maintain American leadership in civil aviation, defense, and space, Congress and the Administration must take action in 2019 in four key areas:

  • Provide budget process stability and predictability that will allow us to make smart investments for the long term;
  • Focus on reducing barriers to trade and growing partnerships globally;
  • Develop processes, regulations and standards that level the playing field in the global marketplace but don’t stifle industry’s ability to innovate; and,
  • Implement policies to grow and strengthen the diverse, skilled workforce we depend on to develop and build the technologies that shape our daily lives.
