Davis: Sequestration cuts 'lazy'

Statement

U.S. Rep Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville) said Wednesday the sequester cuts that could affect Central Illinois Regional Airport's air traffic control tower are fueled by politics.

"The politics of it is the overall implementation of sequestration cuts that have been meant by this administration to be painful on the overall hard working taxpayer in this country, rather than going in and trimming out two cents on every dollar like sequestration is asking," he said.

Davis said he agrees Bloomington Mayor Steve Stockton and Normal Mayor Chris Koos and local companies should fight the closure.
