FAA Reauthorization Act on Track for Senate Passage

May 2, 2024

The Senate will gavel in for legislative business today after successfully advancing [89-10] a bill to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) during yesterday’s session. Discussions on a “time agreement” are still ongoing among Senate leadership, which would likely include votes on a series of amendments to the underlying bill before moving to final passage. With negotiations still ongoing — and no votes scheduled for tomorrow — it is increasingly likely that the Senate’s final up-or-down vote on the FAA Reauthorization Act will slip to next week ahead of the Friday, May 10 deadline. Meanwhile, House lawmakers have adjourned for the week to accommodate funeral services for the late Rep. Donald Payne Jr. (D-NJ).
