Two North Texas Air Traffic Controllers Quit Over Shutdown

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is down three air traffic controllers because of the federal government shutdown.  The controllers union says one controller at the regional Fort Worth Center and two at Addison Airport have quit because they, and 800-thousand other federal workers, haven't been paid since December.  

Nick Daniels is president of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association at Fort Worth Center and he predicts more controllers will quit unless the shutdown ends soon.  Daniels says he expects planes will be grounded if the shutdown drags on.
