Press Release From: Rep. Dave Weldon
Posted: Thursday, October 31, 2002

"Ensuring America, and in particular Florida, remains a leader in aerospace is one of my top priorities.  To that end,  I authored legislation creating the Commission on the Future of the U.S. Aerospace Industry.  

Today's report--a first of many reports to come from the commission--is encouraging.  Florida's aerospace and aviation industry ranks 4th in employment with highly competitive wages.  By strengthening ties between government, industry, and academia, Florida will continue to be a leader in the space industry.  

I commend Commission Chairman Bob Walker for the work he and his fellow commissioners and their hard working staff are doing," said  Rep. Dave Weldon.
