Senate to Take Up FAA Reauthorization

The Senate is set to take up a reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Administration, which runs out of funding on July 15.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday on the Senate floor that the chamber would use a House-passed bill, H.R. 636, as a vehicle for the reauthorization. The Kentucky Republican moved to proceed with the House bill after the chamber votes today on a trade secrets measure. 

President Obama signed a three-and-a-half month FAA funding extension last week.

Last month, the Senate Commerce Committee approved a FAA reauthorization that would fund the agency through fiscal year 2017.
