The US House of Representatives Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure has released the text of its bipartisan FAA Reauthorization bill. Titled the “Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act,” the legislation reauthorizes the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and aviation safety and infrastructure programs for the next five years.
Introduced by Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Sam Graves (R-MO), along with full Committee Ranking Member Rick Larsen (D-WA), Aviation Subcommittee Chairman Garret Graves (R-LA), and Aviation Subcommittee Ranking Member Steve Cohen (D-TN), the bill is intended to “provide long-term stability and funding for the FAA”, and expected to reach the President’s desk before the current FAA law expires in September 2023.
Among priorities, the bill references aviation safety, safe operation and integration of unmanned aircraft systems and advanced air mobility, in addition to regular airport and workforce development investments.
