Representative LaTourette (R-OH) spoke to reporters and answered questions about a partial shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) after Congress failed to pass re-authorization legislation prior to the August recess. He disputed Democratic member claims that Republicans were “hostage takers,” noting Speaker Boehner’s offer of a clean bill. He also called Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood’s comments at a White House press briefing “vulgar.”

About 4,000 FAA workers had been furloughed since July 23 when the House and Senate could not agree on legislation that would have extended the current funding levels. This briefing contains language some may find offensive. close
