Congressman Pete King Tours Harris Corporation facility in Amityville
This morning I had the opportunity to tour the Harris Corporation facility in Amityville and meet with its executives and employees. Harris Corporation is a major defense contractor employing more than 500 people, almost all of them from Long Island. Most importantly Harris provides major components for our nation's air defense arsenal including the F-35, P-8, F-16, F-15, F-22 and remotely controlled aircraft. At a time when the world is becoming increasingly dangerous, the United States must maintain and expand our military capability. I have always fought hard in Congress for a strong military and for state of the art weaponry. America must never lower its guard and as Long Islanders we should be proud of the role that Harris Corporation plays in defending our nation.
