Rep. D’Esposito is proud to stand alongside colleagues in government and labor leaders in support of H.R. 1716, which he co-sponsors.

This legislation is designed to ensure there is one consistent standard for aircraft maintenance, which does not exist at the nearly 1,000 overseas repair facilities.

Currently, the lax safety standards at international repair shops incentivize the outsourcing of airline maintenance jobs to overseas locations — including the 93 facilities located in China.

Improving aircraft safety standards has national security benefits and will bring more good union jobs back to the USA.

Anthony is proud to co-sponsor this bipartisan legislation and will continue advocating for it as a Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Republicans member.

Glad to stand with members of the Transport Workers Union (TWU) and AMT, as well as colleagues in government Congressman Marc MolinaroCongresswoman Nicole Malliotakis and Congressman Nick LaLota. (10/23/23)
