House Members Urged to Reiterate Opposition to User Fees
Contact your representative to sign on
January 12, 2011 — The chairman and ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Aviation in the 111th Congress are asking fellow congressional representatives to urge the Obama Administration not to include aviation user fees in the Fiscal Year 2011 budget proposal. Tom Petri (R-Wis.) and Jerry Costello (D-Ill.) have sent a “Dear Colleague” letter to fellow members asking them to sign a bipartisan letter to President Obama reiterating the anti-user fee position. In 2010, 118 members signed a similar letter.
EAA encourages members to contact their representatives urging them to sign the letter as soon as possible, as hearings on the FAA budget will begin within the next week or so. For information on contacting your representative, click here.
