Congress Has Extended FAA Funding 16 Times Since 2007
Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee Chairman
John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV and Byron Dorgan, Chairman of the
Subcommittee on Aviation, Operations, Safety and Security, are
pushing their colleagues to pass the FAA Reauthorization in the
lame duck Congress.
“We have relied on too many short-term reauthorizations
and stop-gap measures. It’s time to get this reauthorization
bill passed,” Chairman Rockefeller said. “This bill
will improve the safety of our skies, modernize our air traffic
control system and support jobs. The time to act is now.”
U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan, Chairman of the Aviation
Subcommittee, said “the failure to pass a bill that will
modernize our air traffic control system, promote greater safety in
the skies, and do the things necessary to support our aviation
system in America will be a significant loss for our country.
“We’ve done short term extension of the FAA
Reauthorization Bill 16 separate times since 2007 and now is the
time to get this bill done,” said Senator Dorgan.
“Those of us who have negotiated between the House and the
Senate have reached agreement on the majority of what is in the
legislation. I believe it is important to make one more effort to
get the benefits of this bill through before the end of this year.
Doing so will create substantial jobs, as well as modernize and
improve our air traffic control system,” said Senator
In a news release, the Senators said the passing of a full
authorization will provide the FAA much needed stability for its
grant-making process to fund critical aviation infrastructure
projects. The bill will strengthen airline safety, modernize
America’s air traffic control system, and support jobs. The
FAA Reauthorization is also important to aviation stakeholders and
international partners who depend on the clarity this legislation
offers for critical certification and support programs.
