Iowa Governor Terry Branstad released the letter that he sent to U.S. Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, in support of the $30 Billion contract that they received from the Department of Defense for 179 refueling planes for the Air Force.
Branstad’s communications director, Tim Albrecht told me last night this contract would bring an estimated 800 new jobs to Iowa along with an approximate annual economic impact of $40 M for the state. He also noted that Boeing already has 57 vendors/suppliers in the state of Iowa.
