Calls Bill "Extraordinarily Positive"
As ANN reported, Wednesday
evening the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee
introduced its version of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2007. The
General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) commends the
House for this bipartisan legislation that significantly
strengthens the effort to modernize the national air transportation
"This bill is extraordinarily positive," said Pete Bunce, GAMA
president and CEO. "It authorizes significant funding for
facilities and equipment required for the implementation of the
Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen), strengthens
the management structure of the Joint Planning and Development
Office (JPDO), incorporates key language requiring program and
implementation reports, and begins the process of reducing or
eliminating redundant FAA capital and operating expenses without
adversely impacting safety."
The introduction of the bill came shortly after Bunce appeared
before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on
Aviation, where he testified in support of Congress ensuring that
realistic and executable timelines for program development, policy
implementation, and rule development are incorporated in the plan
"This legislation addresses many of the concerns raised by
general aviation and puts in place building blocks required to move
forward with NextGen," said Bunce.
"We are proud to have leaders like Chairmen Oberstar and
Costello and ranking members Mica and Petri taking bold steps to
ensure these critical needs are met in the NextGen process."
