Pro Tem Bingman Statement on relocation of Boeing jobs to Tinker Air Force Base

Senate Pro Tem Brian Bingman issued the following statement after Wednesday’s announcement that The Boeing Company would close its Wichita facility and relocate 800 engineering jobs to Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma.

“Boeing’s announced relocation of some 800 high-paying jobs to Oklahoma confirms what we already knew; our state has become a magnet for high-profile businesses seeking a pro-jobs climate.

“This latest announcement comes on the heels of Boeing’s earlier decision to bring 550 additional jobs to our state from California. Ultimately this benefits every community in our state as we continue our efforts to bring new jobs and greater opportunities throughout Oklahoma.”
