HR 1979. Private Airport Control Towers/Vote to Revoke a Retroactive Public Subsidy to Small Airports that Used Private Companies to Construct Air Traffic Control Towers.

(win or loss)

Republicans in the House sought to use funds from the federal Airport Improvement Program to pay for the construction and maintenance costs of privately-run control towers. A provision in this bill allowed small airports to use these funds to reimburse themselves for the costs of towers constructed before 1996. Seeing this as an unnecessary handout to such airports, Progressives opposed this provision. With Progressive support, Oberstar (D-MN) proposed an amendment to the bill that would remove the provision. This vote was on Oberstar's amendment, so a yes vote was a vote against the small airport reimbursement and for the Progressive position. The amendment was rejected, 202-223.
