Vote Description

HR 3354 Rural Air Service Subsidies (Roll Call 447)

The Congressman Tom McClintock (R-CA, 98.7% ACU LIFE) amendment to the Transportation and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations bill eliminates $150 million in funding for a program that subsidizes air service to rural airports with little passenger traffic and applies the 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 September 6, 2017 by a vote of 140-280.
