Washington, DC - United States Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) along with Representative Seth Moulton (MA-06) applauded the announcement that GE Aviation has been awarded a competitive, single $517,375,800 Cost Plus Incentive Fee contract for the Engineering & Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase of the Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP), benefitting workers at GE Aviation's facility and its community in Lynn, Massachusetts.

"We congratulate the dedicated and talented workers at GE Aviation's facility in Lynn, whose efforts enhance our nation's military readiness," the lawmakers said.
