More federal funding for FAA and air traffic control.

Patton adopted a letter to Congressional leaders from 4 Governors:

The nationís Governors urge the Conference Committee on the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization to quickly complete action on a multiyear reauthorization of the FAA and Airport Improvement Program (AIP) that invests dedicated airport and airways trust fund revenues for their intended purposes.

Governors support efforts to ensure that dedicated revenues are immediately made available to address key safety and congestion issues. The current lapse in the program has already jeopardized numerous airport improvement projects, and we urge conferees to quickly resolve their differences. The airport and airway trust fund can support significantly higher funding for both AIP and the Air Traffic Control Modernization program. We ask you to increase funding levels for these programs by applying the airport and airways trust fund receipts for their intended purpose.

Governors, along with our partners in the Coalition for TRUST (Transportation Revenues Used Solely for Transportation) - a broad coalition of business, labor, farm, and state and local officials - recognize that insufficient investment in transportation jeopardizes economic growth. Furthermore, the Governors recognize the safety, security, and other broad public benefits provided by the FAA and support a guarantee of continued general funding for FAA operations.

On behalf of the nationís governors and the TRUST Coalition, we ask for your help in completing a conference on this critical legislation to end the current lapse in funding for this crucial program.
