Courtney Reaction To UTC Deal
“This agreement is a significant victory for Connecticut’s economy and our future, and I applaud Governor Malloy and the leadership of UTC for making it happen. Our state has long been a leader in defense and aerospace manufacturing, and this agreement will provide critical support to ensure that we can retain and bolster our edge in the years to come. As important, this package will also provide greater certainty and support to the thousands of small and mid-sized manufacturers that support UTC with cutting-edge innovation and good-paying jobs.
“UTC’s commitment to our state is a direct result of years of collaboration among company leaders, our state officials and the congressional delegation to ensure that Connecticut’s workforce continues to play a critical role in supporting America’s security priorities, and I am excited for what this means for the future of our state.”
