ELECTRONIC INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT ISSUES STATEMENT ON DEFENSE SECRETARY'S 'BOTTOM UP REVIEW'
WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Peter F. McCloskey, president, Electronic Industries Association, issued the following statement concerning support for Defense Secretary Aspin's "Bottom Up Review": The Electronic Industries Association (EIA) applauds Defense Secretary Aspin's plan, released yesterday, which calls for a realignment of our fighting forces and maintenance of a strong defense industrial base. The association is particularly pleased with Secretary Aspin's recognition in his "Bottom Up Review," that private companies, not government owned depots and arsenals, be relied upon more for repair and modernization of military equipment. The association has long advocated the position of elimination of arbitrary statutory percentage allocations for depot maintenance workload, as well as replacement of government-industry competition with industry competition for the modifications/upgrades and the majority of depot maintenance workload. EIA will work with the administration in attempting to encourage Congress to support this critical aspect of Secretary Aspin's plan to modernize the U.S. military. For more than 69 years, the Electronic Industries Association has been the national trade organization representing the U.S. electronics manufacturers. Committed to the competitiveness of the American producer, EIA represents the entire spectrum of companies involved in the manufacture of electronic components, parts, systems and equipment for communications, industrial, government and consumer-end uses. -0- 9/2/93 /CONTACT: Mark V.
