WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) issued the following statement today following European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company’s announcement that it would drop its fight for the $35 billion U.S. Air Force KC-X aerial refueling tanker contract:

“The decade of delay is over. I am relieved that our airmen and women and our Kansas workers can now look to the future with certainty. Replacing the aging tanker fleet with the next-generation Boeing tanker is essential to the security of our country and safety of our troops, and is a much-needed economic boost to our state. Let’s get to work.”
