Transportation Secretary Questioned on Air Traffic Control Privatization

Mississippi Republican Senator Roger Wicker says the president's privatization plan for the nation's air traffic control system "is a tough sell" in states like his, where small airports are common. "The sale needs to be made, and it needs to be made convincingly," he says. Secretary Elaine Chao responds that the plan will help reduce fees for general aviation, adding that she is concerned about the potential impact on rural America.
