Inslee urges Boeing to build its new jet in Washington | HeraldNet.com
LYNNWOOD — Gov. Jay Inslee said Thursday efforts are under way to ensure the new mid-size airplane on Boeing drawing boards is eventually built in Washington.
Inslee said his staff has had “discussions with industry leaders” about the new plane, which company executives have unofficially dubbed the 797 and would be a replacement for the 757. Boeing officials offered details of the future aircraft at the Paris Air Show in June.
[Ed.: Someone woke Inslee up long enough for him to do something? Oh, wait, no, “his staff had discussions”, so nobody had to rouse “Sleepy Jay Inslee”. I’m sure that KTTH host Todd Herman will be happy to know that no winks were harmed in the making of this story.]
