NATCA GARNERING SUPPORT FOR AVIATION FUNDING STABILITY ACT

At this year’s NATCA in Washington (NiW), NATCAvists went to Capitol Hill to garner additional co-sponsors on the Aviation Funding Stability Act (H.R. 1108 in the House; S. 762 in the Senate). These two bills are identical legislation. 

NATCA supports both H.R. 1108 and S.762. If enacted, the legislation would ensure that the aviation system continues to fully operate, without interruption, in the event of a government shutdown. 

H.R. 1108 was introduced by Reps. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., Chairman of the House Transportation & Infrastructure (T&I) Committee, and Rick Larsen, D-Wash., Chairman of the Aviation Subcommittee. The lead Republican on the legislation is Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-Ohio, a senior member of the House T&I Committee. This legislation was introduced following the 35-day government shutdown that wreaked havoc on the National Airspace System and its workforce.

The T&I Committee passed H.R. 1108 on Wednesday, March 27 by unanimous consent. Since the introduction of the bill, the NLC, NATCA activists, and Government Affairs staff have been aggressively working to encourage members of Congress to sign on as co-sponsors to this important legislation. The legislation has faced hurdles and political challenges, especially among the leadership of the House Appropriations Committee and the House Ways & Means Committee. Despite that, the legislation has garnered 242 bipartisan co-sponsors so far.

NATCA focused its resources on garnering support for the House version of the legislation. Support for the proposal has grown in recent months. NATCA in Washington served as the launching pad for NATCA’s advocacy on the Senate companion legislation, S. 762, which is identical to H.R. 1108. S. 762 was introduced by Senator Jerry Moran, R-Kan., and has garnered nine bipartisan co-sponsors so far.
