Transportation Democrats Release Dissenting Views on 21st Century AIRR Act’s Air Traffic Privatization Plan

Washington, D.C. –Today, Democrats on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure released Dissenting Views on H.R. 2997, the “21st Century AIRR Act”, summarizing their unanimous opposition to a controversial plan to privatize the nation’s air traffic control system.

“While we support bipartisan provisions of the bill reforming the FAA’s certification processes, advancing the safe, responsible integration of unmanned aircraft into the National

Airspace System, updating rules on flight attendant minimum rest, and others, we object to privatization of air traffic control as a risky experiment that threatens to delay modernization programs, reduce access, and drive up the cost of air travel,” write the Democratic Members.
