Tower funding still in limbo

WEST BAY, Fla. -- Funding for the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport control tower is still in limbo. But continued funding is looking good for the Federal Aviation Administration's contract tower program, in which the airport participates. "Right now, it looks like things are moving forward," said Airport Director Parker McClellan, noting language in both the Senate and House budget bills in support of the program, which costs about $150 million annually.
