Chair DeFazio Statement on Federal Indictment of Boeing’s Former 737 MAX Technical Pilot Mark Forkner

Washington, DC - Chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Peter DeFazio (D-OR) released the following statement:

“Senior leaders throughout Boeing are responsible for the culture of concealment that ultimately led to the 737 MAX crashes and the death of 346 innocent people—Mark Forkner’s indictment should not be the end of the accountability for this colossal and tragic failure,” Chair DeFazio said. “The FAA must work urgently to implement the bipartisan legislation we designed to prevent this type of systemic failure from ever happening again.”
