Blumenthal Statement on Passage of Sikorsky Deal

[HARTFORD, CT] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) today praised the Connecticut legislature’s passage of an agreement with Sikorsky, which will maintain more than 7,000 jobs and keep Sikorsky’s headquarters in Connecticut through 2042.

“Broad bipartisan General Assembly support is a credit to Sikorsky’s incredible new helicopter lines and world-class workforce. Our Congressional delegation commends Governor Lamont’s leadership and the strong legislative partnership to grow one of our state’s most important employers,” said Blumenthal. “Connecticut stands strongly in united support of our defense manufacturers and their employees who are second to none in expertise and experience. I will continue to fight to bring defense work to our state, which tremendously benefits Connecticut and boosts our nation’s security.”
