Analyst speculates that ‘fiscal cliff’ could close airports

The Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, speculated in a recent report that the airport could be one of six in Florida and 106 around the country that would have to shut down because the FAA wouldn’t be able to pay air traffic controllers.
