FAA Faces Potential Shutdown if Congress Doesn’t Pass Bill by Midnight Friday
Par for the course.
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood urged Congress to pass the FAA reauthorization bill by midnight tomorrow in order to avoid a partial shutdown of the aviation agency.
“We have now reached a breaking point,” LaHood said in a press conference today. “This is no way to run the best aviation system in the world. We need Congress to go to work, to put our employees back to work and to get the FAA bill extended or passed for the benefit of the American people.”
