UNITED STATES (www.incnow.tv) - The FAA is expected to release the list of airport control towers set to be closed.

The closings come with the loss of about 600 million dollars from the sequester. The agency previously released a list of 200 towers facing potential closure last month.

In the meantime, they’ve been hearing arguments from managers to keep their respective towers running. Towers in the area facing potential closures are Lafayette tower in West Lafayette and Delaware County Regional in Muncie.
