The White House proposal calls for transferring air traffic control operations from the federal government to a nonprofit or nongovernmental organization at “no charge,” according to a set of legislative principles Trump signed on Monday.

It also would require the government to pay the private entity for any environmental liabilities associated with the transfer of assets.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has spent $7 billion on a modernization program called NextGen, but has been slow to to implement it, which is part of the administration’s argument for moving operations to a private entity.

Democrats slammed the idea during a House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee hearing on Thursday, saying it would amount to a corporate giveaway because taxpayers have already poured billions of dollars into the country’s air navigation system.
