Senate votes to end FAA furloughs

 

The senate has voted to get rid of the FAA furloughs that have been causing massive flight delays at U.S. airports.

There’s already been thousands of flight delays and cancelations this week because of the air traffic controller furloughs.

The furloughs were put in place by the FAA in response to forced spending cuts that took effect last month.

The bill allows the FAA to access $253 million that has already been allocated for other programs.

A vote in the house is expected Friday.
