house Roll Call 243     Jun 20, 2002

Winning Side:
Conservative

House Republicans wanted to reimburse airports for the construction and maintenance costs of privately-run control towers, and to pull money from the federal Airport Improvement Program to do it. Progressives supported this idea in principle, but they disagreed with a provision in the law that reimbursed airports for these costs even if they had constructed their control towers before 1996. They felt this amounted to a handout to private companies running these control towers. Though Progressives voted against it, the bill passed 284-143.
