Calling aviation the lifeblood of Alaska, Sen. Begich spoke on the Senate floor about the importance of the Essential Air Service program, which supports air service to 44 rural Alaska communities. The program is under fire by an amendment from Sen. McCain (R -- AZ) which would kill Alaska jobs, threaten the ability of some communities to get timely medical services, create higher grocery prices and slow mail delivery by ending the program.
