Monday will be the second day of furloughs within the Federal Aviation Administration. The furloughs are a result of government spending cuts from the sequester.
According to USA Today, the F.A.A. has at least 47,000 employees, with 15,000 of them working in air traffic control towers. As a result of the sequester, employees with the F.A.A. will lose one day of work every other week.
On Sunday, the first day of the furloughs, there were some flight delays due to staffing issues at three New York airports. The other delays were caused by weather, according to the F.A.A.
Governor Rick Scott wrote a letter to President Barack Obama, asking him to address the situation. Governor Scott says the furloughs will " have a devastating impact on Florida families by creating unnecessary delays that will impact Florida airports."
Air travel experts say the results of the furloughs could be more apparent Monday, compared to Sunday, since there are more people traveling.
