Contact Congress Issue Spotlight: Help NBAA Stop ATC Privatization, User Fees
On Feb. 4, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster introduced his FAA reauthorization bill, H.R. 4441. Not surprisingly, the legislation, which is being pushed by the big airlines, calls for the privatization of our nation’s ATC system, and funds the new system through user fees. Under the proposal, the commercial airlines and their pilots would control the greatest number of seats on a new board created to oversee the privatized system. This proposal’s plan to privatize ATC is such a pronounced threat for the future ability of business aviation to fly when and where it needs to.
H.R. 4441 seeks to privatize the air traffic control system and fund it with user fees. Tell your Members of Congress to oppose such a harmful proposal.
Send #NoPrivatizedATC tweets to your elected officials letting them know that you oppose ATC privatization and general aviation user fees. Tweets will be seen by your elected officials, the media and your own Twitter followers, harnessing the power of social media to amplify your advocacy efforts.
