way too much money being set aside for 2011. $3+ bill for noise reduction is is not necessary.There are many more seroius issues at airports than noise. This is just going to go to well-connected bidders.

This funding needs to be reduced significantly. There is to much make work and wasteful spending in this Bill. It should be reduced by 35% to do the peoples business efficiently and not waste taxpayer dollars.

Just more borrowing garbage for airports.

The S&P has downgraded USA's credit rating to an AA+ and it will keep on going down to an "F" if we keep on raising the debt ceiling.

Shut down the FAA. SHUT DOWN THE AIRPORTS.

VOTE NO.
