Rep. Troy E. Nehls Reintroduces Airlines Independent of Restrictions (AIR) Act
Congressman Troy E. Nehls (R-TX-22) reintroduced the Airlines Independent of Restrictions (AIR) Act, a bill that would direct the Secretary of Transportation to rescind the two “no-fly zone” Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM’s) over Disneyland and Disneyworld.
Disney is the only theme park in the United States that benefits from the restriction for the commercial gains of eliminating banner ads and disruptive aircraft from their parks. Most flight-restricted areas in the United States are over places of high security or hazardous regions.
“I’m proud to reintroduce my bill, the Airlines Independent of Restrictions (AIR) Act, in the 118th Congress to revoke Disney’s special no-fly zone privileges,” said Congressman Nehls. “Theme parks like Disney should not receive special treatment just because they are well-connected. Our national security should not be compromised to fit the needs of one corporation.”
“Woke corporations shouldn’t get any favors from the government,” said Congresswoman Boebert. “The FAA has no business granting a no-fly-zone over Disney parks. Universal Studios, Hershey Park, Six Flags, and other theme parks don’t have no-fly-zones over them, and it’s time for Disney to get the same treatment. No corporation should get preferential treatment from the government—especially when it is grooming children. Go woke, go broke.”
“Congress delegated ‘no fly zone’ authority to the FAA for high security institutions such as the White House, military bases, or hazards like wildfires and hurricanes,” said Congressman LaMalfa. “Preferential treatment of one corporation over competitors is not a legitimate use of a no fly zone and it’s time to disband this unfair practice.”
Original co-sponsors of this legislation include Representatives Lauren Boebert (CO-03), Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Andrew Clyde (GA-09), Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14), Doug LaMalfa (CA-01), Scott Perry (PA-10), and Greg Steube (FL-17).
