NATCA APPLAUDS HOUSE FOR FINAL APPROVAL OF FAA BILL
 
WASHINGTON – National Air Traffic Controllers Association President Paul Rinaldi praised today’s House vote to approve the conference report for the long-term reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Administration:

“We applaud the House of Representatives for approving the long-overdue FAA reauthorization bill, but the measure is not yet law. The Senate must act – and must act quickly – on this important compromise to ensure a safer, more modern and more efficient U.S. aviation system.

“We represent over 20,000 hard-working and dedicated air traffic controllers, engineers and other safety-related aviation professionals who are dedicated to safer and more efficient air travel. This measure will allow them to do their jobs better; it will create jobs, promote global competitiveness, allow for important safety improvements and accelerate technological advances like the NextGen air traffic management system.

“We have waited five years for a long-term FAA reauthorization bill. It's time for Congress to get the job done.”
