U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, will convene a full committee hearing on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, at 9:30 a.m. entitled, “Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization.”
The first in a series of hearings on the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization, the hearing on April 14th will examine key aviation funding and programmatic issues within the broader FAA reauthorization. Subsequent hearings will focus on areas of interest such as manufacturing competitiveness and certification, airport and infrastructure financing, safety and general aviation matters, and air traffic control modernization and reform.  
The last multi-year FAA bill, the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, authorized the agency for fiscal years 2011-2015. This hearing and the subcommittee hearings to follow will form the Committee’s record for consideration of the next FAA reauthorization bill.
