Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 November 19, 2015
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Today the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the FAA are working on the next generation radar system. We have talked about this for a long period of time. I think the Senate knows that this Senator has been active in aviation for a long time, and this is something we have been working on together. The next generation radar system, called Multi-function Phased Array Radar, or MPAR, is comprised of individual radar stations capable of both air traffic tracking and weather surveillance."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 November 18, 2015
Jack Reed, D-RI
"Among the critical transportation investments that this bill provides is $16 billion to the Federal Aviation Administration, fully funding the agency’s budget request for air traffic control, safety oversight, and its facilities and equipment. Again, so much of our commercial activity depends upon a solid aviation infrastructure. We are fully funding their request, ensuring that they have adequate infrastructure, particularly when it comes to air traffic control in an age in which there are technological revolutions, causing them to reinvest constantly in better equipment and better preparation. For the past 3 years, in fact, maintenance on the agency’s basic infrastructure has been deferred so the air traffic control challenges could be met and could be fully funded, but that is not a sustainable long-term strategy. The bill in front of us today, under the leadership of the chairman, puts the FAA back on track, and we want to keep it on track."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency November 17, 2015
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"That is why this bill requires the FAA, NASA, and the Air Force to work together to reduce the administrative burden on industry operating on government property and to do that by streamlining the Federal launch requirements and processes."
Positive Train Control October 28, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"Let me say this. NTSB is amazing. They are the ones who show up after horrible crashes of rail, of plane, and they are the ones who make really important safety recommendations. Well, actually, they work with the FAA. So they are the ones who come forward after an accident. They do the investigation, and they make the recommendations."
Airport And Airway Extension Act Of 2015 September 28, 2015
Anna Eshoo, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, with passage of H.R. 3614 today, the House will “kick the can down the road” on a long-term FAA reauthorization for another six months. I certainly recognize the dire need to keep our airports and air travel system functioning in the face of an expiration of the FAA‘s authorization in less than 72 hours. However, I’m very disappointed that this bill does not contain any changes to current policy regarding aircraft noise impacts on communities surrounding airports."
