House and Senate Release Competing Aviation Authorization Bills
On Thursday June 29th, the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee approved with bipartisan support a bill to reauthorize federal aviation programs for four years. After the adoption of several amendments to a manger's package, the bill was advanced unanimously by voice vote. The measure, which chose to exclude language that would privatize ATC operations, was moved through committee with little contention and now moves to a floor vote. Amendments adopted into the underlying bill included language to develop an airline passengers bill or rights, permit the use of PFC funds for security purposes, allow for different ways of accumulating 1,500 hours of flight training, expand waiver authority and extend UAS test site programs, allow for remote tower programs within the Contract Tower program, strengthen consumer protections for passengers with disabilities, and require a rule making on supersonic travel.
