Aviation Subcommittee Chairman Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ) will conduct a Congressional hearing on Wednesday to examine the progress the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has made in implementing provisions of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 in the last two years. 

The Reform Act was enacted on February 14, 2012, and contains provisions intended to improve the safety and efficiency of the civil aviation system now and into the future.  It provides the FAA with resources needed to safely operate the air traffic control system, invest in airport infrastructure, and continue implementing the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) program.  The measure also provides greater stability to allow government and industry stakeholders to make long-term investment and policy decisions.

The hearing, entitled “The FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012: Two Years Later,” is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 in 2167 Rayburn House Office Building.

Witnesses:

  • The Honorable Michael Huerta, Administrator, Federal Aviation Administration
  • The Honorable Calvin Scovel, III, Inspector General, U.S. Department of Transportation
  • Dr. Gerald Dillingham, Director – Civil Aviation Issues, Government Accountability Office
  • More information about the hearing, including testimony, additional background information, and link to a live webcast, will be posted here as it becomes available.
