OAKLAND, CA - JULY 26: A fence secures the perimeter of a half-completed 236-foot FAA control tower at Oakland International Airport on July 26, 2011 in Oakland, California. Construction crews working on a new FAA air traffic control tower at Oakland International Airport were told last Friday to stop working after the U.S. House of Representatives refused to reauthorize routine funding of the FAA, resulting in 4,000 FAA employees being furloughed and nearly $2.5 billion in airport construction jobs being halted. Air traffic controllers are not being affected. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images) less
