FAA Modernization

On Thursday March 25, 2010 the House considered Senate amendments to H.R. 1586: the FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act. This measure provides funding to modernize the nation's Air Traffic Control system. It increases pilot training requirements, directs the FAA to address over-scheduling issues with airlines, and requires that airlines have specific plans for addressing long tarmac delays. These plans must include ensuring passenger access to food, water and clean restrooms, and deplaning if the delay is lengthy.

I voted YES. H.R. 1586 passed and the entire vote is recorded below:
