Thousands of Organizations Unite to Protect America’s Economy and Innovation Leadership

Non-Defense and Defense Groups to Demand Solutions to Sequestration

Washington, D.C. – Leading representatives from industries and sectors on both the defense and non-defense side of the sequestration debate will detail a joint effort they are undertaking to put a stop to the severe budget cuts currently set to go into effect on March 1. This event marks the first time the defense and nondefense communities have joined together to speak with one voice about the ways in which Americans will be harmed by continued cuts to core government functions, including the military, education, public health, science, public safety, and infrastructure.

The Aerospace Industries Association, NDD United and the Task Force for American Innovation, together representing thousands of member companies, institutions and organizations, will urge President Obama and Congress to work together to find a balanced, bipartisan permanent solution to the meat axe of sequestration budget cuts.
