Hartford, CT - The Connecticut federal delegation released the following statement today regarding slated closures of air traffic control towers in Connecticut due to the sequester:

“We received word from the Federal Aviation Administration today that federal funding for the air traffic control towers at Sikorsky Memorial, Danbury Municipal, Groton-New London, Hartford-Brainard, Tweed-New Haven and Waterbury-Oxford airports may be terminated on April 7 as a result of the sequester. This move, which is entirely preventable, will have a direct impact on the residents employed by these airports who could lose their jobs, the local economies that rely on these facilities and the safety of our airports. We will continue our efforts to reverse the sequester and work toward a bipartisan compromise that will avoid these arbitrary across-the-board cuts that threaten to cause job losses in industries throughout the Connecticut economy.”
