Letter to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood - Administration's Choice to Close Contract Towers


Location: Washington, DC

Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation Ranking Member John Thune (R-SD) and House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) wrote today to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, expressing concerns about the potential impact on aviation safety due to the Administration's choice to close 149 contract towers around the country.

Specifically, Thune and Shuster requested information regarding the safety analysis done to ensure closing each tower, as well as so many towers at the same time does not compromise safety as well as a detailed justification and explanation for how the FAA determined each contract tower would be closed.
