Stop the Job-Killing FAA Shutdown

Yet again, the House Republicans are playing politics instead of building a strong, secure America. In another blatant example of political theater, the House Republicans refused to pass a routine measure to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), forcing layoffs of thousands of FAA and construction workers, with tens of thousands more jobs at risk.

Tell your members of Congress: 90,000 workers are counting on you to immediately fund the FAA—and America’s workers are counting on you to do it without scapegoating workers.
