Moran Press Conference

First District Kansas Congressman Jerry Moran spoke at a press conference today in Washington D.C. as a part of a bipartisan group of lawmakers pushing to get the Department of Defense to account for a recent ruling by the World Trade Organization. Moran argues the European Union has illegally subsidized development of Airbus aircraft.

Airbus is currently competing with Boeing for an Air Force contract to build next generation tankers.

At the press conference, Congressman Moran said it is critical for Kansas workers, the U.S. military and American taxpayers that Boeing be given a fair shot at this tanker.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
