Senator Patty Murray Creates Online Petition

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON STATE--U.S. Senator Patty Murray has made no secret of her disgust towards an air tanker contract being awarded to Airbus, not Boeing.

On her website, she is encouraging people to sign a petition. Senator Murray will use the electronic signatures to help fight the Air Force's decision. Last week, the Air Force gave a $40 billion dollar defense contract to the European company, Airbus.

Considering the impact this could have on the economy, Senator Murray is urging you to get on-board.
