Vote Description

HR 2577 (Roll Call 298) Rural Air Service Subsidies

The McClintock amendment to the Transportation-HUD Appropriations bill eliminates $155 million in funding for a program that subsidizes air service to rural airports with little passenger traffic. It applies these funds to deficit reduction. ACU opposes this wasteful spending on mostly short distance air service to destinations easily accessible by car or bus and supported this amendment. The House defeated the amendment on June 4, 2015 by a vote of 166-255
