The Federal Aviation Administration reduced the number of airport towers it plans to close from 173 to 149. Based on feedback from communities, the FAA decided to keep 24 of the air-traffic control towers open. "Unfortunately we are faced with a series of difficult choices that we have to make to reach the required cuts under sequestration," Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said.
