Obama Administration Delaying Closure Of Airport Control Towers
Saturday, April 6, 2013
President Obama's administration is now delaying the closing of 149 airport control towers until mid June to deal with legal challenges.
Towers were originally set to start closing tomorrow (Sunday, April 7th). The Ithaca Airport tower had a close date of May 5th.
The FAA said yesterday these closures will be delayed to June 15th, due to trade groups who represent the companies who operate the towers filing a lawsuit in Federal Court this past Thursday. (April 4th)
