FAA delays closing airport control towers

The Federal Aviation Administration is delaying the closure of 149 air traffic control towers, including 12 in New England, until June 15 while it deals with legal challenges and proposed changes.

The agency last month said it would cut off funding for the towers starting April 7 as part of $637 million in budget cuts required under federal spending reductions known as sequestration.
