Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Faa Extension, Safety, And Security Act Of 2016 July 15, 2016
Betty McCollum, D-MN
"Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of the FAA Extension, Safety, and Security Act of 2016 (H. Res. 818). I remain frustrated by Congress’ inability to pass a long-term extension of FAA authority and I am concerned with some of the language included within this reauthorization. However, these reservations do not justify opposition to the bill and I therefore support its passage. Without this extension, current FAA authority would expire on July 15, causing major side effects that would cripple our economy."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Conference Report—Continued June 28, 2016
Robert Menendez, D-NJ
"I frequently hear concerns from my constituents who live near our Air Force base in New Jersey that the planes passing overhead are loud, that they are disturbing them as they go about their daily lives. It is a serious concern. We have worked with the FAA to monitor and regulate that. But imagine that instead of carrying passengers or cargo to New Jersey, those planes were dropping military-grade explosives that land just a few miles from your home. Imagine warships parked off of your shore firing live rounds onto your beaches."
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."
