U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today responded to the U.S. Air Force's new draft request for proposal for a refueling tanker.
“While I am still reviewing the draft Request for Proposal, it is my hope that it will address GAO's eight recommendations in an equitable manner,” said Shelby. “Moreover, I am gratified that the plan appears to bring this needed capability into the hands of our warfighters as quickly as possible. I remain committed to ensuring that this is a fair, open and transparent process that serves our men and women in uniform in the best way possible.”
