Uncertainties remain about airport tower funds

There seems to be some confusion regarding legislation from the U.S. House of Representatives and signed by President Barack Obama that would fund the operations of air traffic control towers.
According to a statement from the office of U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Dardanelle, the bill would stop the closures of Arkansas air traffic control towers by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
"The FAA now has the funds to keep the towers in Arkansas open," said Caroline Rabbitt, Cotton's communications director in Washington.

Hickory airport tower could still close

HICKORY N.C. — The salvation of the tower at Hickory Regional Airport is not a done deal. In fact, air traffic control towers across the nation are awaiting word from the Federal Aviation Administration on their fate.
