Senate Passes FAA Reauthorization Act

The Senate passed S223, the FAA Reauthorization Act, by a vote of 87-8. The bill keeps the funding for the FAA for the remainder of FY 2011 at current levels, along with some increased taxes on commercial airline fuel.

All eight nay votes were Republicans – Crapo (ID), DeMint (SC), Johnson (WI), Lee (UT), Paul (TX), Risch (ID), Toomey (PA), and Vitter (LA).

The bill now goes to the House.
