Entry Title Date
Authorizing Use Of Passenger Facility Charges From One Airport At A Previously Associated Airport June 21, 2016
Dina Titus, D-NV
"Mr. Speaker, I, too, have no further speakers. I just want to say that I support this legislation. I urge my colleagues to do the same, and I also admonish them to show the same degree of urgency when it comes to reauthorizing the FAA."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 10, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"We have also done things such as pass a reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Act, the FAA. That may not seem like a big deal unless, of course, you fly in an airplane and care about safety. The legislation we passed—I think the Senate has done that—has helped regulate the growing number of remotely run aircraft or drones to make sure those don’t conflict with passenger planes, so those will be safer. That is just another example."
Energy Policy Modernization Bill April 20, 2016
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Now, Mr. President, passing the FAA reauthorization bill isn’t the only legislative milestone we will mark this week. Today we will pass, as the New York Times put it, “the first major energy bill to come to the Senate floor since the Bush administration,” the passage of which, as the paper has also noted, would represent a significant step forward for the Nation’s energy policy."
Energy And Faa Bills April 20, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"So we want to be here and work with the Republican leader and friends on the other side of the aisle to get things done. That is why we have been no obstacle to the FAA bill. It is too bad it is such a narrow version of what we wanted to do, but the Republican leader said we will finish the things that we wanted to do to deal with section 48(c) before the end of the year."
The Appropriations Process April 20, 2016
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"That started with the committees. We have seen what is possible in the Commerce Committee; just look at the FAA bill. We have seen what is possible in the Energy Committee; just look at the Energy bill. But we are also seeing what is possible in many other committees, such as Appropriations."
