Mr. BARROW of Georgia. I thank the gentlelady for yielding me the time.

Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of H.R. 1848, the Small Airplane Revitalization Act of 2013. This bill improves safety, lowers costs, and stimulates private sector innovation, all while cutting red tape.

We need to do everything we can to keep our economy growing. For the last year and a half, representatives from the Federal Aviation Administration and the aviation industry have worked together to make recommendations for regulations that will keep us safe in the sky and grow our economy back on the ground. This bill adopts those recommendations.

I'm proud to stand with the bipartisan group of Congressmen who have helped bring this bill to the floor today, including Mr. Pompeo, Mr. Lipinski, Mr. Rokita, Mr. Nolan, and my cochair of the General Aviation Task Force, Mr. Graves. This bill follows in the tradition of the General Aviation Caucus in the House to work together in a bipartisan fashion. That's the way things should be done around here, and this bill is proof that good things can happen when Republicans and Democrats work together.

I encourage all my colleagues to support this legislation.
