On Sept. 13, the House approved a clean extension of funding and operating authority for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The bill (H.R. 2887), which extends agency programs at current funding levels through Jan. 31, 2012, with no policy changes, now moves to the Senate. With the 21st extension of VISION 100, the nation’s most recent aviation law, expiring on Sept. 16, urgent action is necessary to prevent another shutdown of the FAA.
