Funding for Air Traffic Control OK'd

Texas air traffic control towers are staying open for now, thanks to funding approved today by the Texas Transportation Commission.

The $2 million will keep the towers staffed at smaller Texas airports, including the ones in Georgetown and San Marcos, that were set to close as soon as this weekend after mandatory federal budget cuts known as the sequester.
