Re: Class E Airspace Question

The controller that refused an SVFR clearance on the basis that the airport was reporting VFR even if you weren't was wrong - this is what the 7110 says:

b. SVFR operations may be authorized for aircraft operating in or transiting a Class B, Class C, Class D, or Class E surface area when the primary airport is reporting VFR but the pilot advises that basic VFR cannot be maintained.
NOTE:
The basic requirements for issuance of a SVFR clearance in subpara a apply with the obvious exception that weather conditions at the controlling airport are not required to be less than basic VFR minima.
