On January 11, 2019, Jim Burnley published "Congress Should Not Add to the Cost of Flying" in Real Clear Politics. The following is an excerpt:
It's a new year, and many Americans are paging through fresh calendars to plan where they will travel in 2020 and beyond. Congress, too, is planning for the year, determining which legislative priorities will get attention in the session ahead, as well as how those priorities will ultimately be paid for. Americans may not be aware, though, that the trips they take by air could become more expensive if Congress moves forward with a plan to ask airline passengers to pay more for their flights.
