Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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."
Recognition Of Constantine (Gus) Sarkos May 8, 2015
Frank LoBiondo, R-NJ
"According to Dennis Filler, Director of the FAA‘s William J. Hughes Technical Center, “Gus Sarkos does the science that becomes the fire safety standards adopted by the whole world.”"
Justice For Victims Of Trafficking Act Of 2015—Continued April 21, 2015
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Having been an active commercial pilot for the last over 50 years—and there are not too many in the Senate; and in our delegation in Oklahoma, I was the only one until a couple years ago—it is only natural that I receive comments from a lot of people concerning problems they have with the FAA."
