Arlington, Va. (Feb. 4, 2022) – Today, the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) President and CEO Eric Fanning released the following statement on the passage of the America Competes Act in the U.S. House of Representatives:

“The health and resilience of our shared supply chain and the competitiveness of the U.S. aerospace and defense industry are key priorities for our industry. Policy bills that focus on strengthening our supply chains and revitalizing domestic manufacturing will help ensure that the United States remains globally competitive in the 21st century and help mitigate future disruptions and shortages that threaten American economic security and jobs. It is encouraging to see both houses of Congress pass bills to address these priority issues, and we urge the House and Senate to come together to reconcile these bills swiftly.”
