Washington, DC – Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) released the following statement after today’s vote on a six-month extension of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) programs:

“The safety of our aviation system and the livelihood of thousands of dedicated FAA employees across the country should not be used to score political points by anyone.  The bill voted down today would provide a stable, clean, and necessary extension of FAA’s current funding for six months so that Congress can complete work on a long-term bill.  Shutting down FAA programs and projects, and furloughing FAA employees, is not in the best interest of our aviation system or the American traveling public.”
