King Votes to End Obama's Flight Delays

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steve King released the following statement after voting in favor of the "Reducing Flight Delays Act" which will allow the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to internally transfer $253 million, eliminating the need for further furloughs of air traffic controllers through the end of the fiscal year. It also may prevent the closure of smaller federally funded towers operated by private contractors that many feared would be forced to close under the sequester.

"Travel delays caused by President Obama's sequester have already impacted the nation, but safety and convenience should not be sacrificed for political gain," said King. "Today I voted to ensure that the air traffic controller system will remain intact, and that our economy and society will not be impacted by frustrating travel delays. Moreover, this legislation shows that House Republicans do not need to cave to the President's demand of higher taxes to replace any or all of the sequester. We can replace the sequester with common sense spending cuts and flexibility within the budget."
