GAMA Joins Industry In Calling On Congress To Reject Newly Proposed Taxes and Fees

GAMA NEWS 11-38 For Immediate Release: Sep 21, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC, September 21, 2011 – Today, the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) joined with 26 leading aviation and labor associations in a letter expressing their opposition to proposed tax and fee increases on the aviation industry.  The letter was sent to leadership in the House and Senate as well as all 12 members of the “Super Committee.”

GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce added, “We join our fellow industry and labor colleagues in opposition to the Administration’s aviation tax and fee proposals.  As President Obama continues his perplexing assault on aviation, it is critical that everyone in aviation stand together to reject these ill-advised proposals.   We have much at stake in this debate and we will continue to work together with Congress to develop proposals that support economic growth and job creation, improve our aviation infrastructure, and enhance safety.”
