Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D. released the following statement on the announcement today by Spriti AeroSystems:

“My heart goes out to the families impacted by this morning’s announcement from Spirit AeroSystems. Growing up outside of Wichita, I have a deep understanding of the aerospace industry’s profound impact not only on the greater Wichita region, but across Kansas as a whole. This announcement is devastating, but Kansans are resilient and our communities are some of the best in the country. I have no doubt that people in Kansas will rally in support of those affected by this news. We look out for one another, that’s what Kansans do. Of course, we want the FAA to ensure that the 737 MAX can safely operate, and I encourage Boeing and Spirit to stay in close communication so that operations can quickly resume once the FAA certifies the aircraft. In the meantime, my office will continue to work with Congressman Estes, the rest of the Kansas delegation, and the Administration to connect impacted families with available resources during these difficult times.”
