Vote Yes For Perry-Boebert Amendment on FAA Legislation

July 20, 2023, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the U.S. House of Representatives to vote in favor of an amendment to the FAA legislation by U.S. Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) and Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) that would protect the existing market for premium tail fin numbers by striking Section 206 and 207 from the bill:

“One man saw a need for a market for higher value airplane tail numbers.  He met that need, investing his money to legally purchase airplane tail numbers that he believed would be desirable, and now provides a way for aircraft owners to have access to these premium numbers.  Those who don’t want to use his service have almost half a million other number and letter combinations to choose from for just $10 each.  This is American entrepreneurial spirit at work and a perfect example of supply and demand. Vote yes on the Perry Boebert amendment number.

“There is no legitimate reason to change the law.  I know this is a little thing, affecting a couple of entrepreneurs and a few aircraft owners, but if you are going to stand for limited government, then you can’t stand for ending an honest market-based business just because you can.”
