House Passes Three-Month FAA Extension

The House passed legislation that would keep the Federal Aviation Administration operating for three months, while lawmakers finish work on a four-year reauthorization bill.

Beyond financing differences, the House bill also contains a number of controversial policy provisions that will have to be navigated in conference, including language that would subject much of the workforce at Federal Express to different union rules, and one that would force the FAA to reopen contract talks with its air traffic controllers union on work rules imposed last summer.
