Congress Pressures FAA to OK Wind Farms

[AVweb] Representatives in both houses of Congress are lobbying the FAA and the Department of Defense to remove the FAA’s roadblock to the development of major wind farm projects across the country. The FAA said recently it wouldn’t OK the projects until the DoD completes its study of their impact on radar returns. The study was due in May but it’s late, and no revised due date has been set. … Proposals in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and Illinois have been stalled by the FAA’s position.
