FAA Continues to Deny Economic Impact of Drug and Alcohol Testing Rule

In a final Regulatory Flexibility Determination published in the Federal Register on July 12, 2011, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reasserted its claim that the 2006 drug and alcohol testing rule did not have a substantial economic impact on small businesses. The FAA released the determination in response to ARSA’s ongoing efforts to compel the agency’s compliance with a 2007 court order requiring it to fully analyze its rule under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA).

Although the FAA dismissed ARSA’s comments to the “supplemental” RFA analysis, the association strongly believes the rule does have a substantial economic impact on small businesses. ARSA is carefully reviewing the final determination, and considering its options.
