House Set to Clear FAA Reauthorization

May 13, 2024

Both chambers will resume legislative business tomorrow as the House looks to clinch a long-term reauthorization for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Late last week, the Senate overwhelmingly passed legislation that will keep the FAA operational into 2028, as well as a one-week extension to provide the House with additional time for a final vote. The FAA Reauthorization Act will now head to the House for consideration under suspension of the rules, which requires a two-thirds majority voting in favor to allow for expedited passage. The bill will need to be passed and signed into law by Friday, May 17 to avoid an agency shutdown.
