Brownback Wants to Meet With Boeing to Talk of Potential Wichita Shutdown

(AP) – Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says he and the state’s congressional delegation want to meet with Boeing Defense officials to understand why the company would consider leaving Wichita.

Boeing has said it’s studying the future of the plant, including a possible closing.

Brownback worked hard as a U.S senator to help Boeing secure a $35 billion Air Force contract for a new  refueling tanker. He noted Tuesday that Boeing made statements in April that much of the work on the new tanker would be completed in Kansas. (see previous post)

The governor also said Wichita has the workforce to do the tanker work and he wants a shot at competing for those jobs.
