Congress is currently debating the critical funding decisions resulting from the budget sequester, and Sawyer International Airport is asking for support in an attempt to prevent the closure of the air traffic control (ATC) tower.

 The FAA is proposing a 75 percent reduction in contract towers. Sawyer International Airport falls below the criteria considered and is, therefore, on the list of locations slated for closure of the air traffic control tower.

 Please help Sawyer appeal to Congress by sending a letter of support! A template letter has been provided for your convince.

Letters will need to be faxed and/or emailed to the following legislators:

Senator Debbie Stabenow
Senator Carl Levin
Congressman Dan Benishek
