As the aviation community waits to hear the next step in the FAA reauthorization, is it encouraging to read comments like the following from Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL): “User fees are dead.”
With the progress Congress has made in the past few months, we here at the Alliance would like to extend our thanks to all of the Senators and Representatives for their time and attention.
But like Phil Boyer of AOPA, we don’t want to let our guard down until the last bill without user fees has been signed. We know that the airlines are investing a great deal of time and energy to keep user fees on the backs of general aviation. With positive voices like Senator Nelson’s, we know that we are moving in the right direction. The Alliance will continue to closely monitor the workings of the Senate to make sure our members are well informed about the nest steps in this process.
