I am sending this info to you in the hope that you will share it with your members, employees via email, newsletter, bulletin board, etc. as a number of them may wish to make such nominations of associates, co-workers, friends, etc.

John Carney's response

No matter what your political affiliation, we all expect our representatives in Washington to give an ear to our concerns. I understand our representatives are busy people, but it is not unreasonable for me to expect them to know their business. If reading my letter is delegated to staff, I am assume my letter will weigh in on some spread sheet or report. The problem is I get a form letter back which reflects Mr. Carney is unaware of the user fee to which I am referring, no one actually read my letter OR no one much cares.

Mr. Carney,

Note from AOPA President Craig Fuller AOPA stand on users fees verus FAA re-authorization bill

Subject: User Fees are back – Act Now!

Regrettably, general aviation user fees are back. They have come at the worst possible time, and they are coming in through the back door in a most challenging way.

I need to say right up front, we need your help. We need every member of the general aviation community to reach out now and let your congressman and senators know that general aviation user fees are wrong!

Take Aviation User Fees off the table

Every signature on this petition gives it more weight.

We petition the Obama administration to:
Take Aviation User Fees off the table

At a time when we should be working to simplify the tax codes, the administration wants to make it more complex by adding another new fee to the aviation system.
