The Senate passed a bill last night exempting controllers from being furloughed and it was then sent to the House. The House has been debating it all morning and are set to vote within the next hour or two. If the bill passes, which it seem to be on track to, then all of the furloughs will be done. One thing that they have said is that it does NOT mean that the contract towers will reopen. It is ONLY for FAA Controllers and that the FCT will be subject to whatever the agency decides to do with them. Yesterday it was said that they would not be reopened, but time will tell.

Best,

Dave

Makes one wonder if perhaps Members of Congress are heavy users of the
commercial aircraft system, and would find themselves discommoded by the
delays and restrictions.

Nah, that can't be it. They couldn't possibly just simply make laws
depending on what inconvenciences them, now could they?

Getting barraged by every aviation lobbyist in town might have had something to do with it...

No profit in that.
You can bank on the fact that some serious lobbying efforts inevitably involved parallel campaign contributions for the next election cycle....
