It's another good news story for the Rocket City, which is projected to add another 30,000 residents over this decade. "This is a big win for Alabama, not only because of the high-paying jobs this project brings, but also because aerospace is such an important growth industry for the future," Gov.

They just have the good sense to not let disagreements stand in the way of growing their city.
