Congress passes legislation temporarily extending funding for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and its construction programs through March 8, 2024.
On Dec. 19, the Senate passed legislation—previously passed by the House of Representatives on Dec. 11—temporarily extending funding for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and its construction programs through March 8, 2024. Sen. Michael Bennett (D-Colo.) released his hold on this extension bill as part of an effort to keep senators at the bargaining table on a supplemental funding bill for Ukraine, Israel, and other matters.
- Increases funding for runways and taxiways;
- Requires U.S. DOT to allow for drones beyond the visual line of sight; and
- Allows for price adjustment clauses.
Unfortunately, the Senate has been unable to reach an agreement on its version of an FAA reauthorization bill on a few key provisions, including pilot training, which necessitated a previous extension to December 31 as well as this current one.
