House Passes Six-month FAA Extension, Includes Tax Relief for Hurricane Victims

Congress Avoids FAA Shutdown
Today, the House of Representatives and Senate passed a six-month extension of the current Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) authorization, avoiding a potential shutdown of the FAA on Saturday.  In addition to extending the operations of the FAA until March 31, the bill provides tax relief for individuals and businesses in areas affected by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
The bill now goes to the president’s desk where he is expected to sign it into law. The bill does not include any changes to the Airport Improvement Program or the Passenger Facility Charge.  AGC will continue to make the case that AIP funding and the PFC need to be increased to address airport and runway infrastructure needs.
