Local tech hub misses out on funding

Backers remain hopeful proposal will still work

No region is better equipped than ours to meet the unprecedented global demand for equipping 40,000 new airplanes with lightweight aerospace parts that reduce carbon emissions. Within a few years, the Inland Northwest Tech Hub can have prototypes ready for high-rate production, enabling thousands of new domestic manufacturing jobs to lessen our growing reliance on foreign technology and foreign labor. Missing this opportunity will increase our reliance on foreign labor, threatening our national and economic security. We will be working on every possible opportunity to make new American jobs and supply chains a reality.
