Aims To Make Weighing In On Controversial Legislation
This week, the National Air Transportation Association (NATA)
released its new Large Aircraft Security Program (LASP) Membership
Comment Tool that members can use to help draft and submit their
comments on the proposed rule. Comments are due no later than
February 27, 2009.
"Commenting on federal regulations can be complicated and time
consuming to say the very least," said NATA President James K.
Coyne. "By providing this document, we are giving our members
specific topical guidance that will eliminate confusion and help
them submit detailed comments on this proposal."
Stating that the association will provide its own comprehensive
set of comments in February, Coyne underscored the importance of
member input on a rule that continues to worry many in the general
"The LASP proposed rule continues to concern our members on many
fronts," concluded Coyne. "It is important that our members review
our LASP Membership Comment Tool so that we identify for the
Transportation Security Administration specific issues with the
proposed rule and, just as important, possible resolutions, thereby
forcing the TSA to address those concerns."
members can also use the LASP Membership Comment Tool as a
discussion aid during one of the five remaining TSA-hosted public
meetings regarding the rulemaking.
The remaining LASP public meetings are:
- January 8, 2009 – Renaissance Concourse Hotel Atlanta
Airport, One Hartsfield Centre Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30354
- January 16, 2009 – Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare
Hotel & Conference Center, 5440 North River Road, Rosemont, IL
- January 23, 2009 – Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel &
Convention Center, 2500 North Hollywood Way, Burbank, CA
- January 28, 2009 – Conference Center, Hilton Houston
Hotel—North Greenspoint, 12400 Greenspoint Drive, Houston,
A copy of the NATA LASP Membership Comment Tool is available for
members to download from the association's LASP Issue Page.
