Airlines for America senior vice president Sean Kennedy spoke on the radio program "Rudy Maxa’s World" about Congress continually seeking ways to increase taxes on airlines and their customers. The House-passed budget proposes to double the TSA ticket tax, which would add $730 million in government revenue. In 1990, there were six aviation taxes, and that number has grown to 17. "This has ... gone too far. We need to have a National Airline Policy that really allows the airlines and passengers to have an industry that can make the investments, create the jobs and add the services that U.S. passengers want," Kennedy said. He encouraged listeners to go to www.nationalairlinepolicy.com to learn more and sign the petition.
