About The Keyvote

The McClintock amendment would strike section 451 of the bill, which authorizes the Essential Air Service (EAS). The original purpose of EAS was to be a small program dedicated to ensuring rural communities had access to some form of air service after the airline deregulation of the 1970s. However, it has since ballooned into a wasteful program that costs taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars every year.
