Representative Gosar Spearheads Arizona GOP Delegation Letter To FAA

United States Congressman Paul Gosar spearheaded an Arizona Republican Delegation letter to the Federal Aviation Administration commending its decision to move forward with construction of the new control tower at Tucson International Airport under a competitive bidding process. Every Republican member of Arizona’s Delegation signed the letter, including Representatives Trent Franks, Matt Salmon, and David Schweikert as well as Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake. Previously, every Democrat in Arizona’s Delegation signed a letter to the FAA requesting that it impose a Project Labor Agreement on contractors building the facility.

As stated in the letter spearheaded by Representative Gosar, however, PLAs typically increase construction costs by 12-to-18-percent, thus wasting millions of taxpayer dollars.
