    ATC Privatization... Again

    Once again proving that politicians are not to be trusted. Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA), chairman of the house committee that's been working on the FAA funding, has inserted a last minute amendment to bring back the privatization of ATC. This may be coming up for a vote as soon as today, so this requires immediate action.

    Yes, it's time of email or call your Congress Critters. Or this web site has a prepared email that will route to your representative and Senators.

    And that quickly, it's over.

    Shuster backs down on last-minute ATC kerfuffle
    Less than 24 hours after proposing an amendment that had shades of his previous effort to "privatize" air traffic control, Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., backed down on his plans thanks to an immediate outpouring of opposition by general aviation pilots. In response to calls by AOPA and other general aviation associations for action, pilots flooded the switchboard at the US House of Representatives, telling their members of Congress to oppose Section 5 of Shuster's "manager's amendment" to H.R. 4, the bill to provide long-term funding to the Federal Aviation Administration.
