Congresswoman Kaptur Welcomes FAA Decision To Delay Closing Contract Towers

Statement

Location: Toledo, OH

U.S. Representative Marcy Kaptur (OH-9) today welcomed the announcement by the Federal Aviation Administration that it was delaying the closure of "contract" air traffic control towers, including Cuyahoga County Airport.

"It is the correct decision, considering the implications of the closures," said Congresswoman Kaptur. "It gives proponents additional time to make the case for the "contract' towers."

Congresswoman Kaptur said the threat of legal action by local officials around the country, including Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, clearly played a role in the FAA's decision to delay the closures until June 15.

"I understand the difficult decisions required by the sequester, which I continue to oppose as bad policy," said Congresswoman Kaptur. "But facilities such as Cuyahoga County Airport are crucial pieces of the physical infrastructure--and that's one of our calling cards as a region."
