Recognizing General Aviation

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. LoBIONDO. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

Mr. Speaker, I rise in strong support of House Resolution 508 offered by my colleague from Nebraska, Mr. Fortenberry. The resolution expresses the sense of the House that the general aviation community be recognized for numerous contributions to the United States.

I'd like to yield to Mr. Fortenberry such time as he may consume.

Mr. LoBIONDO. Mr. Speaker, in closing, the aviation industry is a vital part of small business. They rely on their fleets to provide the efficient and cost-effective transportation of goods and personnel.

It is very appropriate that we are considering this resolution today. The Experimental Aircraft Association is holding its annual convention this week in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, known as the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. It is referred to by many simply as ``Oshkosh.'' It is the world's largest general aviation fly-in.

A healthy and productive general aviation industry is important to both our Nation's economy and to the American way of life, and I urge all of my colleagues to support this resolution.
