Laramie County Commissioner Keith ''Buck" Holmes says sequestration could eventually remove funding for the control tower at the Cheyenne Regional Airport.

Holmes says the local airport has one of a number of control towers across the nation that the FAA has listed for De-funding under sequestration. He adds, however, that because the local air control tower is manned by National Guard personnel, the lack of funding will not immediately shut down the Cheyenne air control tower. Holmes says the De-funding could impact the local air tower in a month or so if the federal budget issues which activated the sequestration cuts are not resolved by then.
