Statement from NATCA President John Carr Regarding Today's FAA Reauthorization Senate Press Conference - (9/16/2003)

WASHINGTON – National Air Traffic Controllers Association President John Carr:

“The American traveling public deserves a strong Federal Aviation Administration bill that protects their safety and improves air travel. We must not allow the Bush Administration to blackmail the Senate and House with airport shutdowns and furloughs only to pursue a political ideology.”

“Today’s message is clear: Our Congress is willing to stand up for safety and protect vital airport projects. We look forward to continuing to work with all members to ensure that the FAA bill is the best it can be, which means preventing the world’s safest and most efficient air traffic control system from being contracted out to the lowest bidder."
