Cessna's Pelton to testify in D.C.

Cessna Aircraft chairman and CEO Jack Pelton is on a panel of witnesses that will testify before the subcommittee on commerce, manufacturing and trade today in Washington, D.C.

The hearing is titled "Made in America: Increasing Jobs through Exports and Trade."

The purpose of the hearing is to examine the Obama administration's efforts to promote trade and increase export opportunities and to get input from private enterprise about technical and other non-tariff trade barriers, according to a committee memo.

President Obama said in his State of the Union address last year that his goal is to double exports over the next five years.

Cessna's Pelton is the only aviation-related panel member scheduled to testify.

Pelton joins Robert Holleyman II, Business Software Alliance president and CEO; Daniel Ikenson, CATO Institute associate director for trade policy studies; John Murphy, U.S. Chamber of Commerce vice president for international affairs; and James Crouse, Capstone Turbine Corp. executive vice president for sales and marketing.

Francisco Sanchez, the under secretary of commerce for international trade, is also scheduled to testify.

Your feedback is always welcome.
Thank you!
