Tim Griffin statement

From Rep. Tim Griffin regarding the recent layoff announcements from Hawker Beechcraft and LM Wind Power:

“This is terrible news for the affected Hawker Beechcraft and LM Wind Power employees, their families and all of Arkansas. My heart goes out to them. Arkansas remains a great place for manufacturing, but these announcements, as well as today’s news that the national unemployment rate continues to rise, are just a few of the reasons why strengthening the economy and encouraging job growth remain my top priorities.”
