WASHINGTON (KNSI) U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar, Al Franken and 16 other senators have introduced bi-partisan legislation that would keep air traffic control towers across Minnesota open.
The "Protect Our Skies Act" authored by Senators Jerry Moran of Kansas and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut would prohibit the Federal Aviation Administration from suspending operation of any air traffic control towers through the end of fiscal year 2014.
The bill would help make sure that towers at St. Cloud Regional Airport, Anoka County-Blaine Airport, Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie and Crystal Airport remain open.
