Rep. Gene Green on the FAA Reauthorization Gridlock

Press Release

Washington, D.C. - In response to the stalemate on reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration, which has hurt thousands of government employees and construction workers who have been caught in the middle of the struggle, Congressman Green released the following statement:

"Congress should extend the authorization of the FAA immediately without controversial issues added by the House Transportation Committee.  The FAA authorization has been extended 20 times in the last few years.  It’s not fair that these folks can’t get back to work doing their jobs, and that taxpayers are having to pay millions of dollars a day on these airport improvement projects that have been stopped mid-process."
