President Signs Legislation Funding Government Through Dec. 8

On September 8, the president signed a $15 billion disaster aid bill that also included short term funding for the federal government, through December 8. While a shutdown on September 30 has been averted for now, Congress will still need to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration before the end of the month. It's possible that the House version of FAA reauthorization could come to the floor for a vote this—H.R.2997 includes a provision that would privatize the nation's air traffic control operations. The Senate bill does not include such language. Both bills would need to be reconciled before going to the president for signature. PASS will continue to monitor the situation. Find out more.
