The battle continues to keep Midway Airport’s control tower operating around the clock.
The FAA plans to shut down Midway’s tower at night due to the sequester budget cuts.
Congressman Dan Lipinksi strongly opposes the decision in a letter to the FAA chief. He demands to know how the nation’s 25th busiest airport got on the list.
149 towers at mostly small airports were supposed to close at night starting Sunday.
The FAA has postponed the closures until June 15th.
