Last week, both the House and the Senate voted to extended the deadline for FAA Reauthorization to June 30, 2008. Their goal is to use the extension to finalize a four-year plan for reauthorization and get the funds we need to modernize our air traffic control system.
We understand Congress’ need to extend the deadline and applaud them for their hours of work on the issue. We urge Congress to finalize the multi-year plan in this time order to get to the business of modernization.
