URGENT: Call to Action from NBAA Regarding ATC Privatization/User Fees

 

February 2, 2016

 

NTBAA Members,

This fight is about to come to a head in the next few weeks when the new ATC Privatization/User Fee Bill is introduced.  I am letting you know now that I will be alerting you to an all out call to action when that happens. However, it is important for you and those you know to be contacting your U.S. Congressional leaders NOW leading up to the bill from US Representative Shuster going to markup. A face to face meeting is best but a phone call or email is also helpful. NBAA has set up a template for you to use as is or edit as you wish on our website:

Please reach out to your members, friends, staff and everyone you know to help. It is that important...

 

Thank you so much for your help! Time is critical!
