AIA Joins with Defense Related Associations to call for “Consistent and Uninterrupted Funding”

The Aerospace Industries Association joined with eleven other organizations as part of the Defense Related Associations in urging Congressional leaders to fund the government for the full 2018 fiscal year, citing the damaging impacts of a federal shutdown or default.

“In the last shutdown, vital programs and services were compromised and our economy lost $24 billion, causing critical impacts. These damaging effects are set to play out again if Congress does not reach agreement to continue government funding.”
