"This is a surmountable problem," Inslee said at a news conference. "We all are excited about this amazing product and we all are obviously concerned and want to make sure we move forward to do the right thing on this product."
Inslee said he spoke with Boeing representatives this morning who told him the company is "working day and night" on answering questions about the safety of the technology.
Also today, Jeff Johnson, president of the Washington State Labor Council, said he's "optimistic" Boeing "can get a handle on it in the next couple weeks."
Johnson, who is also a leader of the Washington Aerospace Partnership, said machinists he's spoken with describe the problem as a "glitch" that can be dealt with.
