Election Brings Some New Faces to D.C. Scene
Last Tuesday's election resulted in re-election for many who are part of the House and Senate General Aviation Caucus, but some congressional retirements and losses at the polls means farewells for some GA allies in Congress. In addition, there could be leadership changes at the Department of Transportation as President Obama's second term begins. EAA will monitor the actions during the congressional lame-duck session over the next two months for any moves that would be detrimental to general aviation, as well as measures taken up by the new Congress when it convenes in January. We will also maintain the strong relationships established with GA supporters in Congress and their staffs.

Camp Scholler Sound Berm to Be Constructed
A Camp Scholler improvement project that will lessen highway noise for campers is under way. Wittman Regional Airport crews are erecting additional fencing and installing a perimeter road on the southwest side of the airport grounds. EAA has been able to obtain the soil removed for the road to use for building a sound-deadening berm between the west edge of Camp Scholler and Poberezny Road. That berm will be approximately seven feet high and, depending on the amount of soil available, up to 1,200 feet long. It will help lower the noise coming into the campground from Highway 41.
