In a letter to U.S Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, Administrator of the FAA Mr. Michael Huerta, and the staff members of Senator Roberts, Senator Moran and Congressman Pompeo, The Board of Sedgwick County Commissioners expressed its concern over the continuing Federal Government shutdown and requested the FAA Aircraft Registry Office in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma be immediately reopened to support the local aircraft industry.
The Board of Sedgwick County Commissioners voted Sept. 21, 2011 to approve new district boundaries in Sedgwick County. The need to redistrict is due to the 2010 Census numbers, which indicated a change in population numbers among the districts. To ensure even population distribution, the commissioners voted to change the district lines slightly. The new boundary map can be viewed here.
