WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today issued the following statement after the President’s announcement on the administration’s intention to privatize air traffic control:
“Proposals to privatize air traffic control threaten the reliable transportation options provided by small airports and the general aviation community for millions of Americans. All but our largest airports nationwide stand to be hurt by this proposal. Privatization eliminates the chance for Congress and the American people to provide oversight, creates uncertainty in the marketplace and is likely to raise costs for consumers."
