Rep. Davis Votes to Protect Traveling Public

U.S. Congressman  Rodney Davis of Taylorville voted Friday to reverse the recent cuts by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and give the agency the flexibility to transfer funds and avoid furloughing traffic controllers and closing contract towers.

The bill, approved by the House on Friday, allows the Transportation Secretary to transfer $253 million in FY 2013 from other FAA accounts to the Operations account to avoid reductions in service and staffing but does not make any additional funds available. Also, the bill gives the FAA the flexibility to do additional transfers within accounts to restore funding for the contract towers that are slated to be closed on June 15, 2013, including the towers in Decatur, Bloomington and Bethalto.
