Support the 21st Century Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization Act, H.R. 2997

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote YES on the 21st Century Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization (AIRR) Act, H.R. 2997. The bill would provide necessary reform to the FAA by modernizing air traffic control (ATC), streamlining regulations, and improving outreach to consumers.

A Bird's Eye View of the AIRR Act

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the federal agency designed to regulate air travel, is currently up for reauthorization as its funding and authority are set to expire in September later this year. Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Penn.), chair of the House Transportation Committee, has introduced the Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization (AIRR) Act to do just that and more.

The Next Big Reform Opportunity

With the arrival of President Trump, government reform seems to be the next big thing in Washington right now. Be it tax reform, financial reform, regulatory reform, or health care reform, the past five months have seen major pushes for reform of government policy and structures to make it more efficient, increase accountability, and decrease overreach. With that spirit in mind, there is another area that could use reform as well: air traffic control.

Stop Over-criminalizing and Over-federalizing Criminal Law

It’s that time again. Another day, another we-need-to-add-multiple-amendments-before-reauthorizing-a-bill moment. Currently, the Senate is moving to pass the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2016 (S.2658), which would grant the FAA funding through September 2017. During this process, however, senators like Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) and Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) have taken the opportunity to squeeze in additional measures by way of amendments as they rush the bill to the floor.

Recent reports indicate that language may be included in H.R. 636, America's Small Business Tax Relief Act of 2015, the vehicle for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization bill in the Senate to provide tax breaks for renewable energy that are slated to expire. FreedomWorks opposes inclusion of this language in the FAA reauthorization bill.

Sky Full of Drones? Oversight and Government Reform Committee Talks Innovation, Safety, and Privacy

On June 17th, the US House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing on drones to discuss the future of the developing technology. The general tone was one of excitement at the prospect of innovation, yet confusion over changing times, technological challenges, and a whole wave of new regulation and common law which is sure to become pressingly relevant in the near future.

Congress ‘Fixes’ Airport Delays by Increasing Deficit

When the White House launched their sequestration scare campaign earlier this year, one of the most hyped consequences was its effect on air travel.Since so many other warnings never were realized, the Obama administration made good on threats last week by ordering 14,750 air traffic controllers on furlough two days a month. As a result, major airports saw flight delays of up to 80 minutes. Granted, some of these effects can be blamed on the weather, but the Beltway’s media message is clear: sequestration is the end of life as we know it.
