FAA Reauthorization Delayed Until October

NASAO continues to meet with key staff during the Congressional recess and have learned today that the introduction of the FAA reauthorization bill will now be delayed until October at the earliest. A short-term extension of the existing authorization now appears to be imminent with the duration of the extension yet to be determined.

Although the exact details of the bill are still uncertain, we remain especially concerned about the future of the aviation trust fund and airport improvement program funding with the proposed creation of a new private air traffic control entity. We, therefore, urge you again to contact your Congressional delegation and insist that the FAA reauthorization bill preserves the integrity of the aviation trust fund as supported by the current set of aviation fees and taxes.

NASAO will continue to provide updates on developments as we receive them and thank you for your action on this issue.
