Update on FAA Reauthorization and Our Fight for 10

Update on FAA Reauthorization and Our Fight for 10

March 23, 2018 — Thanks to your advocacy, we are well positioned and closer than ever to achieving our Fight for 10!

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) funding and policies will be extended to October 1, 2018, under a broad spending bill expected to become law on Friday to keep the government open. The FAA’s authorization has been extended temporarily for months at a time since last year. This short-term extension gives Congress through September to draft and pass a long-term FAA policy bill.

The House and Senate bills will be rewritten over the next few months into a four year FAA Bill. Our 10 hours minimum rest as well as a Fatigue Risk Management Plan will be in the final version of the long-term bill as long as we continue to hold lawmakers accountable with our action.

We are well positioned to achieve our Fight for 10 language. Redoubling our efforts will make it certain. Watch for instructions to take action in the coming weeks and keep it going until our 10 hours and Fatigue Risk Management Plan are signed into law this year.
