Washington, DC, May 31, 2013 – With an eye toward the conclusion of the federal government's 2013 fiscal year on Sept. 30, the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) and 10 other aviation organizations recently signed a joint letter to leaders of the U.S. House and Senate Appropriations Committees, not only thanking them for legislation passed earlier this year to preserve contract air traffic control towers slated for closure, but to also reaffirm the need for continued funding for the facilities in the future.
