I’ve contributed to Dan Ward’s campaign. Strongly suggest you all do as well. Solid pilot advocate is needed in Congress.

Keep in mind that Brat is a good Republican and certainly he and the current administration will protect our jobs. They have used LPPs before.

I’ve looked over that website but couldn’t find the text of the bill. Is it even written yet? Would love to know what “certain persons” means.

“Certainly” might’ve been poor word choice...

Can’t figure the spin that it’s good for airline stability.

Sort of the same spin used years ago when promised LPPs.

Whatever any bill says.... it’s the opposite. No matter whose written it. We should all be very afraid.
