Sen. Ted Cruz urges US air traffic control modernization - 03-08

US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called on aviation stakeholders to re-examine the pros and cons of air traffic control (ATC) modernization. However, he stopped short of directly calling to spin off ATC from the FAA, telling a March 8 gathering of airport executive in Washington DC that he would use his role as chairman of the newly expanded Subcommittee on Aviation and Space to conduct hearings on the issue.
