The NBAA commended Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) today for the stance she has taken against general aviation user fees in a November 28 letter to President Obama. “The negative impacts associated with the user fees you have proposed would obstruct the Alaskan transportation system and negatively impact the U.S. economy,” she wrote, referring specifically to the President’s jobs bill, which includes a proposal for a $100 per-flight fee on general aviation aircraft. “We thank the senator for her letter to the President opposing user fees,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen.
