White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the Obama administration would be willing to meet with lawmakers over furloughs imposed by the Federal Aviation Administration. "If Congress wants to address specifically the problems caused by the sequester with the FAA, we would be open to looking at that," Carney said. Members of Congress have begun introducing legislation, including a bipartisan bill by Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and John Hoeven, R-N.D., which provides the Department of Transportation more flexibility to manage the FAA cuts.
