Compromise on Labor Provisions Could Lead to FAA Funding Bill

Congressional leaders have reportedly reached an agreement that will allow them to get past the impasse on union voting rules that was a major reason for the FAA shutdown last August. See John Crowley, Congress Reaches Breakthrough on U.S. Aviation Bill, Reuters, Jan. 20, 2012 (available here). The FAA has operated on short-term funding extensions for the past few years, seriously inhibiting the ability to plan for long-term projects such as the NextGen air traffic control system. The current funding extension ends January 31. This compromise provides optimism that a bill with long-term funding will be passed soon.
