“I look forward to having another opportunity to speak with President Obama about continuing to fund the production of the F-22 Raptor Fighter Jets,” commented Rep. Scott. “This is an immense opportunity to help secure jobs for the almost 100,000 Lockheed Martin employees and others that work on this aircraft and an essential component of our national security.
Congressman Scott’s 13th Congressional District includes Marietta, home to the F-22 plant.
