Senate Vote - S. 223: FAA Reauthorization

S. 223: FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act


(Previous Amendments)

Nelson (FL) Amdt. No. 34
Agreed to 96-1, 3 not voting

CQ Roll Call, 2/8/2011:
The amendment was to drop aviation research language from the FAA reauthorization bill that could have spawned a turf battle with NASA.

The reason the debate is moving at a snail’s pace is a standoff over whether to add more long-distance flights in and out of Reagan National; Reid said today that he’d move to cut off debate early next week if a deal isn't struck.

The Finance Committee, meanwhile, completed a section of the bill that would raise more revenue for airport improvements and air traffic control modernization.
