Bolen issues statement regarding the FAA funding extension


NBAA welcomes decision by Congress and the White House to extend FAA funding

National Business Aviation Association
(NBAA) president and chief executive Ed Bolen has issued a statement regarding
action by Congress and the Obama administration to approve an extension of
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funding, while Congress considers
multi-year reauthorization legislation: 

“NBAA and the business aviation community welcome the action by Congress and
the president to finalize an extension of funding for the FAA. Although we have
long said that a multi-year FAA reauthorization bill is the best way to provide
the guidance needed for long-term initiatives including implementation of a
Next Generation Air Traffic System, we also know that passage of a short-term
extension of existing funding levels puts all FAA employees back to work on
existing priorities, including many important airport maintenance and
construction projects around the country.”
