FAA Air Traffic Control Program Dropped from GAO High-Risk List

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a press release earlier this week to promote that its Air Traffic Control modernization program was removed from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) High-Risk List. The ATC modernization program was the only item dropped from the most recently updated list of areas that the GAO identifies as high-risk due to their greater vulnerabilities to fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement. The ATC modernization program was first placed on the list in 1995.
