FAA furloughs 4,000 workers after funding expires, congressional 'inaction'

Post by Guest on Sat Jul 23, 2011 9:11 am

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) partially shut down Saturday, as Congress failed to reauthorize the agency's funding.

“I’m very disappointed that Congress adjourned today without passing a clean extension of the FAA bill," Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said in a Friday statement. “Because of their inaction, states and airports won’t be able to work on their construction projects, and too many people will have to go without a paycheck. This is no way to run the best aviation system in the world.”

About 4,000 FAA employees are now furloughed without pay, according to the FAA, as the Senate on Friday failed to approve a controversial House-passed extension of taxes that help fund the FAA.

This is just disgusting. They did this last August as well while we were all fighting to get 4213 passed if you remember. Last minute, they rushed it through due to a little known fact that it would include the air traffic controllers. They fixed that little glitch. Completely disgusting.
