Entry Title Date
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions June 18, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"What I received from the FAA was—simply put—startling, and it really crystallized for me the magnitude of the problem we face."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 June 4, 2015
David Price, D-NC
"I thank the gentleman for yielding. I simply want to add—or to reiterate, I might say—that our subcommittee’s fiscal year ‘15 report required the FAA to work with the Phoenix community on this issue and to report back to the committee on these efforts. We are still waiting for that report."
Spurring Private Aerospace Competitiveness And Entrepreneurship Act Of 2015 May 21, 2015
Lamar Smith, R-TX
"Mr. Chairman, this amendment requires the launch license streamlining report to include recommendations on how the FAA should facilitate outreach to minority- and women-owned businesses about opportunities in the commercial space industry. I don’t object to the gentlewoman’s amendment."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2262, Spurring Private Aerospace Competitiveness And Entrepreneurship Act Of 2015; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 880, American Research And Competitiveness… May 20, 2015
Bill Posey, R-FL
"Let me add that this bill includes a provision requiring the FAA to provide direction for space support vehicles, also known as experimental aircraft. Unfortunately, for too long, the FAA has held off providing direction by means of a regulatory framework for these endeavors to safely support the United States commercial space endeavors. In Florida, there is such an entity, approved by NASA and operating out of the Kennedy Space Center, which the FAA grounded because they use experimental aircraft. This is a testament that FAA needs serious reform and needs to be brought into the 21st century."
Recognizing Colonel Kevin Kennedy May 20, 2015
John Thune, R-SD
"As a result of his efforts, in January of this year the Air Force signed the Record of Decision for the Powder River Training Complex expansion, which was approved by the FAA a few months later. Once this airspace is charted and operational, Ellsworth Air Force Base will save up to $23 million a year by being able to train closer to home. In addition, other aircraft from around the Nation can come to South Dakota to utilize this training space, improving overall readiness. The expanded Powder River Training Complex is a national treasure."
