Bill would make Boeing say it cares about

Washington

 

An interesting piece appeared recently in the Seattle Times regarding a new Bill which would address some of the frustration Washington legislators are feeling with the Boeing Company.  Seattle Times deputy business editor, Rami Grunbaum, quotes WA Representative, Brendan Williams as making this statement after Boeing turned their back on WA as the site for their new 787 line:

“Every time one of their demands is satisfied,” he says, “all of a sudden they have another bill. And at the end of the day, they move production to South Carolina anyway.”

Williams, who was joined by 16 other House members in proposing H.B. 2316, says he’s “not motivated by some sort of hostility towards Boeing.” But he asserts there’s “a sort of economic terrorism that’s going on” with the aerospace industry’s continued pressure for tax and regulatory changes.”
