Washington DC (March 19, 2020) – In response to COVID-19's continuing impact on the aviation industry, the National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO) - who represents state aviation agencies across the nation - has issued a letter to congress encouraging financial resources be made available to the nation's airports and airlines. 

The "nation's aviation system is critical to interstate commerce in an intercontinental nation and deserves special consideration as we seek to preserve our economy and way of life." 
 
"We urge [congress] to provide $10 billion in immediate support for the nation's airports through the FAA's existing Airport Improvement Program."

The letter is being shared by NASAO membership throughout the state level.
