WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Cessna Aircraft is celebrating the start of construction on a new facility in Wichita to build its Citation
Columbus business jet.
Wednesday's event has drawn business, local and state leaders to
Wichita. Among them is Governor Kathleen Sebelius.
The expansion is expected to bring more than 1,000 direct jobs with a payroll of $74 million. The company says it is investing $780 million to develop the Columbus.
Incentive funding is provided by state and local governments for the project. Earlier this year, legislative leaders cleared the way for the state to issue $33 million in bonds for the company.
