U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss will co-chair the U.S. Senate Aerospace Caucus during the upcoming 112th Congress.
“Ensuring a strong aerospace industry is critical to our national defense,” Chambliss said in a statement. “…I look forward to advancing the priorities of this caucus in the 112th Congress.”
U.S. Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Kit Bond, R-Mo., in May 2010 started the Aerospace Caucus.
“(We) launched this caucus to protect and advocate a strong, secure and competitive American aerospace industry,” Bond said in a statement. “As a long-time supporter of this critical industry and a founding member of the Aerospace Caucus, I am confident Sen. Chambliss will continue that fight.”
