house Bill H.R. 636

Reauthorizing the FAA for Two-Years and Developing Drone Regulations

Argument in favor

The FAA plays too important a role in assuring the safety of air travel in the U.S. to be in a precarious funding situation. Authorizing its funding for two years while starting the process of creating regulations for drones are necessary actions.

Look, stupid people are already flying drones in no fly zones around our airports. They need to be regulated for the safety of our pilots and their passengers. Just like lasers, you can't just play with them near airports.

Drone airspace should be regulated to assure an organized highway like system so the sky doesn't become a plastic swarm. After regulation we can adjust programming for AI to follow said regulation so the sooner the better.

Argument opposed

A two-year reauthorization is unnecessary, as the new Congress that begins its term next year can handle the process for fiscal year 2017. It’s too early to begin developing regulations for commercial drone use.

I say fund the FAA, but like others have said, drone regulations are too soon. Just like the Feds / Obama wanting to regulate the Internet and now giving the DNS to some foreign country to manage. This will only hurt Americans again and stifle growth in new industries (drones).

Too soon to pass drone regulations like this. It could cripple many businesses in a young, rapidly growing industry.

Tax law is a mess...everyone knows....piling on more nonsense is insane. Implement a flat tax.

    The FAA has done a fine job. It deserves two more years of funding. And drones are a common sight now. Putting off regulation of them is foolish.

    Small businesses are being destroyed through continual government regulations and taxes. When I purchase property for my business, there should be NO AMORTISING! All business owners should be able to count expenditures for business property as business expenses in the year the money was spent. I don't purchase property and pay for it over a 20-25 year period. I shouldn't have to spread out the cost on taxes over a 20-25 year period! Give us a break!

    It needs to be fair to people and allow them to know why they are being inconvenienced by flight changes, cancellations, etc. it doesn't have to be such a miserable experience for everyone!

    Small businesses provide the most jobs. They need to be encouraged, not punished.

    This is step one of privatizing the air traffic control system. We have the safest airspace system in the world, and those with privatized airspace systems have some of the lowest safety marks.

    While I know that the Federal Aviation Administration needs to be reauthorized, it should not get through with handouts and special deals for certain energy producers. It's basically "green pork," that does not belong as part of a must-pass bill. Let people debate whether these tax carveouts are fair -- on their own merits. It deserves vigorous debate. Congress already did a tax extenders package that extended corporate subsidies for things like wind energy. Please do oppose adding even more of this to the FAA bill -- it's bad policy, and it's bad practice.

    Protect passenger rights and get drones out of airspaces. This should be a bi partisan move.
