Kansans have built general aviation and commercial airplanes for a century, helping us become the Air Capital of the World. However, the negative effects of COVID-19 have slowed production rates to record lows, putting thousands of Kansans out of work and jeopardizing our local companies' stability.

The Aviation Manufacturing Jobs Protection (AMJP) Program will help keep workers on the payroll and connected with their aviation jobs, which solves the short-term unemployment issue and keeps our skilled workforce here in the Sunflower State for the long term. This common sense, bipartisan legislation has the backing of the unions and workers and is a way to rebuild our economy.

Learn more about the AMJP Program at the Department of Transportation's website: transportation.gov/AMJP.
