Email Congress, House Action Looming

Have you joined the hundreds of Pacific Northwest business aviation professionals in sharing your opposition to the Congressional Houses' ATC "Privatization" proposal? Congress is back from recess with the House Transportation & Infrastructure committee chair is actively working to secure more votes for H.R. 2997.

Last month PNBAA President Jeff Roberts shared an insightful request for individuals in the business aviation community to weigh in opposing H.R. 2997. Individual voter voices carry tremendous influence. Please invest five minutes to email or call your Congressional representatives now. Utilize the linked resources on the PNBAA website home page.
