house Bill H.R. 4

Reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration & Reforming Disaster Relief

Argument in favor

This bipartisan bill wisely reauthorizes the FAA for five years, improves airport infrastructure, enhances aircraft safety, further integrates drones into the national airspace, and improves consumer protections for air travelers. It also reforms disaster recovery programs to ensure funding goes to mitigation activities, improving preparation for the next disaster.

Keep the FAA FULLY operational and performing its current functions subject to getting improved as required.

The FAA used to follow Six Sigma practices, recognizing there was absolutely no room for error. We need to go back to that practice.

Need to make sure you enforce the laws no Squandering the tax payers money or goes into someone’s pocket. Make sure someone is held accountable for all monies spent.

Argument opposed

While it stops short of privatizing the FAA, this bill does too much to reform the agency by streamlining its certification and regulatory processes. Alternatively, it doesn’t reauthorize the agency for long enough. It’s also unwise to focus 15% of disaster assistance on mitigating the impact of future disasters.

Why is this one bill? It contains two completely unrelated issues.

Significantly separate issues that have been bundled together. Is this yet another symptom of dysfunction? Please, let’s provide an opportunity for each issue to be evaluated on the merits.

When the GOP uses the word 'reform' in bills it means to cut and gut the aforementioned service or agency. This congress has proven by its inaction on anything that serves the general public that they cannot be trusted 'reforming' the vital agencies of the FAA & FEMA, that exist expressly to protect and assist the people.

    This really should be 2 separate bills. Our infrastructure of course needs updating, and airline safety should always be a concern. But why are all these issues crammed into one bill? Seems odd at best and shady at worst.

    This is more of a give away program than really fixing anything. No real funds are appropriated for this bill. But as congress will do is to pass this without really reading it.

    Privatization of the FAA will be a disaster. Literally, people will end up dead. Without Six Sigma, airline passengers become a numbers game of “acceptable losses” for profit. Our flight safety laws are not something to dick around with.

    I am not an advocate of partisan politics BUT, since 45 created this unholy mess. ANY legislation presented by Republicans is questionable and needs to be examined with a fine tooth comb. This, is a classic example.

    The private sector cannot be expected to emphasize safety over profits (see Allegiant and SWA).

    Single pilot cargo planes is not a good idea. It seems this bill was written by business people seeking a bigger bottom line rather than legislators seeking safety for their citizens.

    Don't like the part about speeding up the regulatory process. And why are we integrating the drones now?

    First, there’s no cost estimate on improving airport infrastructure. Why is this for only five years, when it will take longer to implement. Disaster funding & airport in one bill. Not even closely related. The 15% funding does not seem feasible. These bills need further study and more data before approving. Send it back to committee.

    Why have all of these agencies become such an embarrassment? I suggest they get NOTHING until they show they are legitimate. No more kickbacks for infrastructure, or services; skilled workers that have the ability to work with the public and serve without an attitude. Same goes for the politicians.

    Republican tax giveaway is bankrupting the country. If they want all this, pass a revenue offset first. Otherwise NO MORE CORPORATE WELFARE!
