Earlier today, the House of Congress voted 248-169 in favor of H.R. 658, the FAA Reauthorization and Reform Act.* See Pete Kasperowicz, House Approves First Long-Term FAA Funding Bill in Eight Years, The Hill, Feb. 3, 2012 (available here). We made note of the legislation's key provisions in Wednesday's blog post. The Senate is expected to vote on the measure next week.
*Edited on 2/6/12. The post originally listed the title of the bill as the FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act, a title pertaining to previous legislation. The post has been edited to provide the correct title.
