Grassroots in Local Districts: Washington

Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers recently had the opportunity to visit Spokane ATCT (GEG). “We discussed a lot of topics and thanked her for co-sponsoring H.R. 1283, the Continuity for Operators with Necessary Training Required for ATC Contract Towers (CONTRACT) Act of 2021 back in March,” said GEG member Ray Peters. “We also talked to her about H.R. 4042, The Aviation Funding Stability Act of 2021.”

After visiting GEG, she posted on Facebook, “It was great to see the work Eastern Washington air traffic controllers are doing to keep passengers from across the country safe at the Spokane Airport. Their vigorous training procedures are impressive and will ensure the next generation of air traffic controllers are equipped to do the same. Thanks so much for the warm welcome and the chance to tour the Spokane Tower!”
