Senator Chuck Grassley issued the comment below about the determination announced today by the U.S. Army Joint Munitions Command that no additional review is needed in order to move production work from Milan, Tennessee, to Burlington, Iowa.

Senator Grassley has worked with others in the Iowa congressional delegation for the last three years to help prevent legislative roadblocks to implementation of this positive development for the Iowa Army Ammunition Plant.  The decision to consolidate the work to Iowa was made by the U.S. Army based on a competitive process.

Grassley comment:

“This decision is tied to more than 100 new jobs at the ammunition plant in Burlington.  The Army’s decision is a tribute to the Iowa workforce and the legacy of the Iowa plant.  At this point, there shouldn’t be any more red tape to clear for the production line to start running, and that’s very good news in Southeast Iowa.”
