Congressman Greg Walden is taking issue with the Federal Aviation Administrations' proposed budget change what could cost taxpayers more. In a letter to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, Walden objects to a proposed elimination of the Contract Tower Program. The program used at many smaller airports like Redmond, Klamath Falls and Medford uses contracted licensed private air traffic controllers instead of government employees at about half the cost. Walden says with all Americans learning to do more with less it does not make sense to eliminate the contract tower program and employ FAA employees costing substantially more. Currently, there are 246 airports nationwide, including six in Oregon that will be affected by the change.  Those 246 towers handle about 27% of all domestic tower operations while accounting for just 9% of the FAA's overall budget.
