FAA reauthorization easily passes Senate, sets up conference showdown
On March 22, the Senate approved, 93-0, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act (HR 1586) to reauthorize the agency until Sept. 30, 2011. The House and Senate must now meet to reconcile considerable differences between HR 1586 and the House-passed FAA reauthorization bill (HR 915).
While neither piece of legislation is "user-friendly' to the aviation maintenance industry, the Senate legislation is preferable to the House bill in several areas.
