That was his first post in the thread. What small, English, words did he use to explain anything?
It never went into conference BECAUSE after the Senate passed it back to the House for that purpose, the riders were attached. What are you reading that claims otherwise?
What? The Republicans object to subsidizing the airport OPERATIONS. If they are closed down, where will the fat cats who donate to the GOP park their Lear jets? Republicans no longer think beyond the ends of their noses, period.
You give it a try. I'm sick of spinning my wheels.
Oh, I see. Yours is strictly an ideological argument. Got it. Sorry, pal, it ain't flying anymore.
No pun intended?
The House passed a temporary funding bill that the Senate ignored. That is what I am talking about, and you keep talking about the bill that is supposed to re certify the FAA.
They object to subsidizing regional airlines. That might end up with some regional airports shutdown, but it will not actually affect the small airports like the one you are talking about because they operate under VFR and the towers are manned by volunteers, not the FAA.
Rutland-Southern Vermont is a FAA Part 139 certificated airport. As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 2,689 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2004. In the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (20072011) it was categorized as a commercial service airport, which requires at least 2,500 passenger boardings per year.
