WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Max Miller (OH-07) today released the following statement on the Owens Amendment #356 to H.R. 3935, the Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act.

“I will vote against the Owens Amendment that would increase daily flight slots at Washington Reagan National Airport, the busiest runway in our nation.

As someone who frequently travels from Washington back to our communities in Northeast Ohio, I have seen first-hand the congestion at Reagan National Airport, which is operating at full capacity. Reagan National is already 10th worst in the country for flight delays and 3rd for cancellations. Adding more flights would only make these statistics worse.

We are fortunate in Northeast Ohio to have numerous options for airports and carriers that will bring our tourism and business needs straight to the nation’s capital. Both Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and Akron-Canton Airport have direct flights between Reagan National throughout the day, which have helped create a key economic ecosystem that strengthens our region.

Bottom line: Northeast Ohio’s airports and airlines that serve our communities are already experiencing significant increases in travel demands and a shortage of pilots and air traffic controllers. It does not make sense to burden travelers with yet another contributing cause to delays and cancellations.”
