My understanding is the FAA provides EAA AirVenture with one hundred FAA employees,
Fifty of them are actually performing Air Traffic Control tower duties.
FAA wants $500,000 for the one hundred FAA employees for the AirVenture week.
That would add up to $5,000 per FAA employee!
Or $10,000 per Air Traffic Controller for the fifty that are actually performing Air Traffic Control tower duties.
Why not tell the FAA to send the other fifty FAA employees home, that are not Helping Air Planes Land and save yourself $250,000
Sequestration can work both ways.
