Congress considers privatizing the air traffic control system
The Washington Post
The Federal Aviation Administration is in the middle of a hiring binge for air-traffic controllers, but just how long the 6,000 people who get the jobs can expect to work for the federal government is unclear.
Frustrated by the FAA’s bureaucratic inertia, there is bipartisan sentiment in Congress to spin off the agency’s biggest single workforce — the almost 15,000 people who control the nation’s air traffic — into a separate corporation.

Schulz briefs Chicago-based firms on status of FAA reauthorization bill
ACC President T.J. Schulz provided an overview of the issues and prospects for a comprehensive bill to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration during a luncheon held in Chicago this week. The luncheon was organized by JJ Morton with Kimely Horn and Todd Knuckey with Atkins, and it included representatives from 11 locally-based companies. Schulz talked about the key committees in Congress and the perspectives of the various aviation stakeholders involved in the bill. Schulz also discussed ways in which ACC promotes beneficial procurement and contracting language and technical training. A similar briefing was held in Philadelphia earlier this year, which was hosted by Arora Engineers. ACC welcomes any opportunity to brief member companies on the FAA reauthorization or other pertinent legislation.
