Is it legal for a government organization to ban straights

I do not see why it would not be legal to set a requirement that made it impossible for straight float equiped aircraft to be included. I guess if you could find a way to land in the grass at that airport, get jacked onto a trailer, self inspect and take off, you would be accepted. Since more and more places are banning float planes in general, I think that they are legal though not very accommodating. Unfortunately Seaplane Pilots (Or for that matter pilots in general) are not a Protected Class. :oops:

Suppose I come in from the south. Do I have to have a Zeka inspection ! Landed in Rome in March after flying from Boston where it was 20 degrees and had to have the aircraft sprayed for Zeka mosquitos. After the pax left the crew left the door had been open for about an hour?
