Congressman Burgess’ Statement on Justice Department Interference 
in the American Airlines Merger

Washington, D.C.
— Today Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (TX-26) released the following statement in regard to the recent Justice Department decision to file suit to stop the merger of American Airlines and US Airways.  

“As a frequent traveler, I have first-hand knowledge of the depths of frustration and anxiety that American Airlines workers have suffered during the bankruptcy.  I was looking forward to the resolution of this long process and the stability that the merger would offer.  Unfortunately, the Department of Justice has interfered with what should be a normal business development. This could hurt thousands of airline employees.  I will do everything within my power to assist these employees during this arduous transition and stop the federal governments’ misguided interference.”
