Sen. Moran Visits with Air Mobility Command’s General Paul Selva

Updated:

NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF SENATOR JERRY MORAN (KAN.)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) met with the Commander for Air Mobility Command, General Paul Selva in Senator Moran’s Washington, DC office.

“General Selva and I discussed the success of last week’s Environmental Impact Study hearing in Wichita for McConnell Air Force Base, which remains in excellent standing. We also talked about budget constraints on the Air Force. I conveyed my continued support and committed to making certain we’re basing tankers at McConnell in 2016,” Sen. Moran said.

On Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013, the Wichita Community held a public hearing in support of McConnell Air Force Base as the new home of the KC-46A. As recent as last week, the Air Force indicated the KC-46A program was in jeopardy due to the government shutdown and a lapse in appropriations. Sen. Moran will continue to work with Air Force leadership to make certain this program remains a top priority for implementation and delivery of tankers to McConnell in 2016.
