Six air traffic control towers in Michigan to close

Six air traffic control towers in Michigan are among nearly 250 scheduled to close nationwide.

The closings will start in April as the FAA cuts off funding for those services.

The AP reports the shutdowns are part of the FAA's move to reduce spending by $600 million.

They affect mostly small and medium sized airports.

Officials at several of those airports say they're fighting to stay open because it will raise concerns about safety and efficiency.
