Connecticut Lawmakers to Meet to Approve Deal with Helicopter Manufacturer
Gov. Dannel Malloy has summoned lawmakers back into a special session beginning Wednesday, September 28, 2016, to approve a deal with Sikorsky Aircraft.
The tentative agreement, worth $220 million in grants and tax exemptions, will keep the company in the state for the next 14 years.
Sikorsky has also committed to growing its Connecticut workforce to 8,000 individuals, and they will build nearly 200 CH-53K King Stallion heavy-lift helicopters in-state.
