USA Today: On Monday, President Trump endorsed getting the job done by creating a private, non-profit corporation that would apply business principles and provide a steady stream of financing. This change would free air traffic control modernization from two major sources of delay: the bureaucratic process used to select contractors, and Congress’ crazy, on-again, off-again budget process that disrupts long-term planning.
Investors Business Daily: It’s not often that we’d argue for the U.S. to follow in the footsteps of Canada or European governments. But when it comes to privatizing the nation’s woefully antiquated and inefficient air traffic control system, that’s precisely what we should do.
Wall Street Journal: Trump’s plan would be a great flight forward.
