State Aviation Officials Applaud Senate Passage of FAA Reauthorization Bill

Last week, the National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO) President and CEO, Greg Pecoraro, issued the following statement regarding U.S. Senate passage of the bipartisan, bicameral Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization bill:

“NASAO applauds the U.S. Senate for passing this bipartisan, bicameral FAA Reauthorization bill. This comprehensive bill ensures that we continue to make much needed investments in our aging aviation infrastructure, but also plan for the future and take advantage of exciting new aeronautical technologies that will keep the United States at the forefront of global aviation. We thank Committee Chair Maria Cantwell, Ranking Member Ted Cruz, Subcommittee Chair Tammy Duckworth, and Subcommittee Ranking Member, Jerry Moran, and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for their leadership and commitment on getting this bill through the Senate. We look forward to seeing the House take up and pass the bill quickly on their return next week.”

Earlier last week, NASAO sent a letter in support of the bipartisan, bicameral FAA reauthorization bill and urging Congress to pass it quickly before the current authorization expired.
