The House passed a bill today to continue funding the Federal Aviation Administration through March 2010. HR 4217 extends aviation taxes as well as allows the FAA to spend those tax revenues on its programs.
The FAA has been operating under a series of extensions since its authorization expired in 2007, and the current extension expires Dec. 31. The House has passed a re-authorization bill in May, but the Senate has not taken it up due to a full calendar.
