Air Traffic Controllers Back to Work

Apr 28, 2013

Lawmakers in the region are divided over a measure to give more flexibility to the FAA while leaving strict spending requirements in place for other parts of the government.

Airport delays caused by the sequester may soon be a thing of the past.  The legislation gives the FAA flexibility so air traffic controllers can get back to work.

Critics say those budget cuts only impact a small minority of the public, like business people and lawmakers themselves, while other parts of sequestration are hitting more vulnerable populations, like low income school children.
