On monday President Trump stated his intention to enable privatization of the FAA. Why? Well if you view government spending as the bastion of well used funds when it comes to large programs then I guess there is no real reason. Will the privatization make a difference in the national budget? The FAA has an annual budget of 15.96 billion. If this were to be privatized it could be argued that a fraction of the budget be used to enforece oversight rather than run the entire thing.
