Encourages Members To Contact Their Senators
NATA President James K. Coyne is
expressing "deep concern" over the future of the FAA
reauthorization bill that is now being held up in the U.S.
Senate. The bill, which was approved by the House of
Representatives two weeks ago, has been held from Floor
consideration in the Senate due to continued concerns about the
future privatization of the air traffic control system.
"While we understand that there are concerns about air traffic
control privatization, this is but one small issue in a bill that
covers the entire aviation industry, not just one segment," Coyne
stated. "To have the measure halted because of politics when
so much is at stake is truly remarkable."
In a letter to NATA, Representative
John Mica, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Aviation, urged
the association's members to contact their U.S. Senators and ask
that they support this critical legislation.
"It is important that you [NATA's members] assist in making
members of the Senate aware of the importance of passing this
measure," Mica stated.
"NATA will continue to make passage of this critical legislation
its number one priority," Coyne concluded. "And we hope these
efforts, along with those of the rest of the industry, will ensure
its passage and make for a festive holiday season, not one where we
end up with coal in our stocking."
