FAA Statement on the FAA Reauthorization Bill Passage

Friday, October 5, 2018

The FAA’s Reauthorization delivers a safer, more secure and efficient aviation system to the traveling public and helps fuel economic growth and competitiveness. Creating a stronger infrastructure and maintaining American leadership in innovation are priorities for President Trump and Transportation Secretary Chao. Today’s signing of the 5-year bill authorizes the reliable, predictable funding the FAA needs to invest in these critical priorities. We applaud the House and the Senate in crafting a bi-partisan bill, and with its signing, the FAA is ready to get to work on the bill’s key provisions.
