(Washington, D.C.) – Today U.S. Senator Patty Murray made the following statement after the World Trade Organization’s final Appellate Body ruling on illegal subsidies for Airbus.

“This final ruling reinforces what I have said all along: Boeing and its workers have been competing on an uneven playing field, and it needs to end.  The delay tactics and misinformation from the Europeans over the years could not mask the fact that launch aid and other illegal subsidies distorted the market and harmed our workers.  It is now time for them to immediately comply with their legal obligations and end their subsidies.”
