LEE COUNTY, Fla.- It will be Friday before we find out how recent federal budget cuts will impact our local airports. Air traffic controller jobs at Page Field, Naples and Punta Gorda airports are all at stake.

The Lee Port Authority is arguing to Congress that Page Field creates jobs and brings nearly $100,000 million to the area.

The Naples airport is considering hiring a private company to provide air controllers if the FAA pulls controllers out of the towers.
