Press Release

(Hartford, CT) – Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01), U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Congressman Joe Courtney (CT-02) issued the following statement in response to the announcement by the Pentagon today of a review of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program:

“Any review of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter will affirm what has long been established—no aircraft in production today can compare with the Joint Strike Fighter’s stealth and survivability. Efforts are already underway to cut costs, raise efficiency, and improve production. A review must avoid any delay in production that will only increase costs and postpone the delivery of this aircraft to our men and women in uniform.”
