(IDAHO FALLS, ID)  — The upcoming federal sequester could lead to the closure of FAA control towers at the Idaho Falls and Pocatello regional airports. Officials say it won’t shut down flights at either airport, but increases the likelihood of delays as well as risks while flying in bad weather. Administrators hope President Obama will intervene on the sequester before the predicted slowdowns impact larger airports nationwide.
