WASHINGTON - Two senators are urging the Obama administration to postpone the furloughing of air traffic controllers, saying the turmoil caused by reduced staffing raises economic and security concerns as well as inconveniencing thousands of travellers.

Kansas Republican Jerry Moran says delaying the furloughs that began Sunday would both give the administration a chance to change its mind about the necessity of the unpaid leaves and give Congress a chance to find a remedy.
