ALPA Pilots: Congress Must End Sequester Threat Now
FAA, TSA, and CBP Cuts Would Affect Airline Passengers and Shippers, Economy, and Jobs
February 25, 2013 - The U.S. Congress must end the sequester threat and make certain that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are not forced to cut hundreds of millions from their budgets, raising the specter of thousands of eliminated, canceled, or delayed flights, reduced passenger service at security and customs checkpoints, air traffic control facility closings, and furloughs, reduced hours, or job eliminations for tens of thousands of U.S. airline industry workers.
