Goodlatte Statement on FAA's Decision to Extend Tower Closure Date

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Bob Goodlatte released the following statement after Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced that the closure of 149 air traffic control towers will be delayed to June 15. Yesterday, Congressman Goodlatte was joined by 46 bipartisan Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in sending a letter to the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requesting immediate action to prevent the closure of these contract towers.

"Today's announcement is positive news for the 149 air traffic control towers facing closure by the FAA. This decision to delay the tower closures will give Secretary LaHood and the FAA more time to develop an alternative plan to prevent the closure of the Lynchburg tower and others across the nation altogether. Federal spending cuts must be made, but completely eliminating funding for these 149 towers is neither responsible nor safe."
