NATCA Statement on Senate Passage of FAA Funding Extension - (9/16/2011)

NATCA applauds the Senate for voting overwhelmingly on Thursday night to temporarily fund the Federal Aviation Administration and keep more than 4,000 critical employees on the job.

The move will ensure continued safety in our skies. It will also keep hundreds of engineers, architects, airport safety inspectors and others working on projects from Newark to Boston to Baltimore.

Senators voted 92-6 to extend the FAA funding through January. FAA funding was set to expire tonight without reauthorization.

NATCA now urges Congress to work on a long-term FAA funding measure. The stakes are simply too high to do otherwise
