Stakeholders Press for a Long-Term Solution

A coalition of more than 25 associations has sent a letter to the Senate highlighting the need for prompt legislation to fund the FAA on a long-term basis. The letter reads, in part: "Investments in our national airspace infrastructure will enable the U.S. aviation system to improve its already enviable safety record as well as increase capacity. Such investment can only be made through a comprehensive authorization package, which has been hamstrung by a series of extensions dating back to Sept. 30, 2007."
