TxDOT Keeping 13 Air Traffic Control Towers Open After SequestrationSubmitted by nctotx on Mon, 04/01/2013 - 09:05
Sequestration = No federal $ to keep small airports Air Traffic Control Towers open.
Texas solution = TxDOT to give $750,000/month to 13 small Regional airports in order to keep the towers open.
My question: Who is flying at these airports? Corporate jets, hobbyists, commerce jets, public safety jets? Should we really be using our tax money on these towers?
