FAA reauthorization remains stalled
from Aviation International News
Despite the best efforts of numerous aviation groups and a small army of lobbyists, Congress adjourned early last month without enacting an FAA reauthorization bill. Before the rush to get out of Washington began in earnest, lawmakers passed a sixteenth short-term extension of FAA programs and funding, which President Obama signed into law. Members of the House and Senate were keen to get back home, and those running for re-election were anxious to begin campaigning for their jobs. After the Nov. 2, elections, Congress is expected to return to Capitol Hill for a lame-duck session.
