- President Signs Short-term FAA Funding Bill
U.S. Senate OK’d Short-term FAA Funding
By Karen Di Piazza / Aug. 5, 2011
FAA funding has been a hot issue for years. Today, after the Senate passed legislation for funding of the Federal Aviation Administration on a short-term extension until September 16, President Barack Obama signed the bill making it official. Earlier today, in less than 60 seconds, via a pro forma session, Sen. Webb (D –Va.) brought House bill H.R. 2553 up asking for passage; Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) had no objections and gaveled the Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2011 effective. FAA short-term funding has restored 74,000 agency and airport construction crews’ jobs.
FAA Funding Woes
The two-week-long partial FAA shutdown—with a revenue loss of $200 million a week—forced the furlough of 4,000 FAA employees, including 1,200 of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association. “This was a tremendously difficult time for them and their families, and for all of the tens of thousands of construction workers who didn’t get paid while their airport projects were shut down by the lack of funding. While this chapter is now closed, we’ll continue to fight for these workers moving forward in hopes that this never happens again,” said NATCA’s president Paul Rinaldi.
FAA Funding for 21st Time
This FAA funding authorization marks the 21st short-term extension since 2007. It’s questionable if the Senate and the House can play nice and pass a long-term FAA funding bill. Fighting like cats and dogs, Democrats and Republicans have very different views with regards to funding or cutting the Essential Air Service (EAS) program, which subsidizes small rural communities with commercial airline service. Sharp claws are also out over whether it should be made more difficult or easier for airline employees to unionize.
These differences are what led to the partial FAA shutdown on July 22 at midnight. For now, the short-term 21st extension FAA funding bill includes cuts to the EAS and makes it more difficult for airline employees to unionize—exactly what the Senate objected to in the first place.
Earlier this year the Senate passed a two-year $35.6 billion FAA reauthorization bill; the House passed a four-year $59.7 billion version. Currently, members of Congress are out on holiday until September 7. When Congress returns it will have to work differences out or pass a 22nd short-term FAA funding bill before September 16.
One thing is for sure: the American public has made it clear they’re more than sick of Republican and Democratic rhetoric.
- FAA Shutdown: Congress Fails to Pass Agency’s Funding
FAA Shutdown Puts Thousands Out of Work
By Karen Di Piazza / July 23, 2011
Thanks to another Congressional debacle—failure to pass Federal Aviation Administration funding by midnight on Friday—the FAA partial shutdown begins today resulting in roughly 4,000 furloughed employees. Air traffic controllers will keep their jobs as they’re considered essential personnel. What must the rest of world think when they hear of our FAA shutdown?
FAA Shutdown and Dwindling Piggybank
However, the FAA’s piggybank is dwindling; if a new short-term extension isn’t passed, and soon, the agency foresees by mid-August it would have no choice but to cut air traffic support. And, unfortunate for aerospace manufacturers—an industry hard-hit by the recession—certification of new products will be left on the back burner. This will trickle down to air charter companies, as new certified aircraft creates jobs and provides consumers with more options for private air travel. Can we really afford an FAA shutdown?
Airport construction projects are also at a halt, as are the paychecks of those working on projects. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood stated that this amounts to roughly $600 million in airport improvement projects at a standstill. Thursday, prior to the shutdown, LaHood and FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt asked Congress to pass a “clean” short-term extension to fund the FAA.
The Surprise EAS Provision
A clean, 21st reauthorization extension to fund current FAA programs through September 16 was expected to take motion before funding expired at midnight on July 22. But just days before the shutdown House Republicans added a controversial provision to the bill: cuts to the Essential Air Service (EAS) program. Thirteen rural communities located 90 or more miles away from a commercial airport hub were slated for elimination. The EAS program subsidizes unprofitable commercial air service at hundreds of rural airports. According to various lawmakers, if the extension were to have passed with EAS cuts, it would have also prevented the opportunity for public comment.
During the shutdown the government doesn’t have authority to collect passenger excise ticket taxes from airlines—roughly $200 million per week that’s paid for by airline consumers. Taxes collected go into the Airport and Airway Trust Fund, which in part funds FAA programs and pays employees.
Since 2007—when the last long-term FAA reauthorization expired—Congress has passed 20 short-term extensions. In February the Senate passed a two-year FAA reauthorization and in April the House of Representatives passed a four-year bill. Meanwhile, the Senate awaits the House to appoint conferees for final legislation.
