(May 30, 2024) – Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) President and CEO Eric Fanning today released the following statement after Senator Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, released a new investment plan to support the defense industrial base:

“AIA commends Sen. Wicker’s leadership and efforts to ensure the U.S. military is backed by a healthy defense industrial base.
