Walz Statement on FAA Bill


Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congressman Walz released the below statement following his vote on legislation to exempt the FAA from sequestration:

"While I firmly stand with air traffic controllers and those FAA employees who make our travel safe and efficient and with Minnesotans who depend on them for business and travel, I also stand with teachers, soldiers, seniors, and children who are also being negatively impacted by sequestration. I could not in good conscience support one fix that only addresses some of the problem and ignores the needs of so many other Minnesotans. We need a balanced, long-term plan to fix sequestration and tackle our debt and I remain committed to working with anyone, in either party, to get it done."
