Today on the Hill: Senate Resumes Consideration of FAA Reauthorization Measure

The Senate will reconvene this morning as lawmakers continue work on a reauthorization measure for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The bill (H.R.302) would provide roughly $90 billion in funding for the FAA over the next five years and would prevent an agency shutdown next week. Final passage of the FAA reauthorization bill could come as early as today, but is expected to be taken up tomorrow.

House lawmakers have left Washington and are not scheduled to be in session until after the November midterm elections.
