HAI Urges Members To Oppose Federal Aviation User Fees

Letter From Relevent Committee To Be Finalized January 17

The chairman of the aviation subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, Rep. Thomas Petri (R-WI), and the subcommittee's ranking member, Rep. Jerry Costello (D-IL), have written a letter to President Obama in opposition of aviation user fees before he releases his recommendations for the federal budget. The president’s budget proposal for Fiscal 2012 is expected to be released the first week in February.

User fees have a negative effect on general aviation and aren’t a necessary source of funding because of the collection of aviation excise taxes.

HAI members need to contact their members of Congress and ask them to sign onto this letter, which is very important and beneficial to the aviation industry. The letter will be finalized by Jan. 17, so it is very important to contact your representatives immediately!

To get in touch with your representative, visit the House Web site and choose your state. Representatives are listed alongside their congressional district. Choose the representative for your district and you will be directed to his or her homepage, where  you will find a phone number and e-mail address for their Washington office. Call or e-mail and ask that they to sign onto Petri and Costello’s letter opposing user fees in the federal budget.

If your representative in Congress is a Republican, ask that they get in touch with Petri’s office. If you are represented by a Democrat, request that they contact Costello’s office to sign on to the letter. When you call your representative’s office, identify which district you are from and how your business or general aviation activities contribute to the economy and enhance the overall health of your district and state.
