Couldn’t sign the user fee petition? Here’s help

I’ve been receiving emails from readers who wanted to sign the petition against user fees, but couldn’t. Here is what I propose we do: If you send me the same registration information that was required, I will consolidate it and send it to President Obama.

Perhaps there are many of you who couldn’t register and voice your disagreement with the proposed aviation user fee. Perhaps there aren’t many. I don’t know. But I’ve never been afraid of work, so I propose to gather your information and send it on.

For those who tried but were unable to raise their voice against user fees using the White House website, please send me the following information — the same requested by the White House website: First name, last name, email address, and ZIP code. Send your information to with “User Fee Response” in the subject line. I will accept your information until 5 p.m. CDT on May 11.

I will draft a cover letter with an attachment containing your registration information. After I send the consolidated response to President Obama I will erase your personal information from my files.

Fly safe and be secure!
