WASHINGTON D.C. (WRN) - The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a response regarding a $500,000 charge to the Experimental Aircraft Association for costs associated with AirVenture in Oshkosh this summer. 

In a statement, the FAA says they are not instituting new user fees and requests the amount to cover "incremental costs" associated with the event during a difficult budget environment.

The FAA says the request covers travel and cost of staffing the home positions of employees working at the event.

The FAA says they have received the letter from State Senators Tammy Baldwin, Ron Johnson and 26 other U.S. Senators and are drafting a response.
