House and Senate Leaders Reach Agreement on Final FAA Bill

After months of discussions between House and Senate negotiators and leadership, the U.S. Senate has begun consideration of a final compromise FAA reauthorization bill on chamber floor today. Congress is working to pass the bill before the current short-term authorization extension expires on May 10, 2024.

“The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2024 is the culmination of months of work between House and Senate committee leaders, and we look forward to moving this agreement through both chambers as expeditiously as possible,” leaders said in a joint statement. Details on the bill (H.R. 3935), including a section-by-section analysis, can be found on the Senate Commerce Committee website.

“ACC commends House and Senate leaders for their tireless efforts to advance a comprehensive FAA reauthorization bill that reflects many of our key priorities,” said ACC President T.J. Schulz. “This bill will help ensure continued investment in U.S. airport infrastructure that will enhance safety and improve the passenger experience. We urge the House and Senate to pass H.R. 3935 as soon as possible.”

The 4-year bill reflects key priorities that have been advocated by ACC. A summary of airport funding and policy provisions can be found here. The ACC Advocacy Committee will host a virtual Washington Update on May 23, 2024 – stay tuned for more details.
