The following is the statement of House Aviation Subcommittee Chairman Tom Petri on the Senate Democrats' decision to pass the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) extension, which the House of Representatives had previously approved on July 20th:

Petri Statement

"I am pleased that the FAA extension issue has been resolved, and now everybody at that agency will be able to get back to work overseeing civilian aviation and modernizing our air traffic control system. And I am glad that private sector construction workers will be able to return to their jobs improving our airports.

"The House and the Senate had some differences over how to proceed, and so I want to commend the Senate for putting disagreements aside by choosing the only way available for getting the FAA back in business quickly.

"While I am relieved that we will have yet another temporary extension in place, we really need to get a long-term reauthorization done so we don't find ourselves in the same place Sept. 16. This has gone on long enough."
