ATA Lobbies US Representative on FAA Bill


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Air Transport Association Of America (ATA)
: 26 March, 2010  (Company News)
The Air Transportation Association believes the House Bill on reauthorisation is inadequate and is calling for a more constructive approach
The Air Transport Association of America (ATA) has issued a statement in response to the US House of Representatives vote on the FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act:

“Unlike the Senate FAA reauthorisation bill, HR 4853 would be a step in the wrong direction,” said ATA President and CEO James May.

According to May, the nation needs legislation that:

* provides leadership and direction to accelerate the deployment of our nation’s NextGen air traffic management system – including creative solutions that synchronize benefits with financing options to help get the infrastructure installed
* encourages, rather than impedes, the expansion of international air service
* deals responsibly with any reasonable concerns about cross-border aircraft maintenance while taking advantage of the extensive existing oversight by our bilateral partners
* halts the excessive growth of the tax-and-fee burden by rejecting the House’s $2 billion Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) increase

May added, “We sincerely hope that the House decides to take a more constructive and forward-thinking approach to FAA reauthorisation as this legislation moves forward.”
