COVID-19 has knocked the U.S. economy down, but not out. There are steps that can be taken to help state and federal economies, keep hundreds of thousands of workers on the job, and sustain critical manufacturing that aids in ensuring our national defense is strong and prepared for whatever may come. One of those steps is continuing funding of the CH-47 Chinook helicopter.
The CH-47F Chinook Block II helicopter supports more than 20,000 total American jobs. Its supply chain includes more than 200 supplier companies in 38 states, creating over $2 billion in estimated annual economic impact nationally. During uncertain economic times, it’s essential to support programs that not only help keep our nation safe, but also keep our workers employed.
There’s no question that the CH-47F Chinook Block II is directly helping American families, companies, and the economy.
