The following is a statement by National Air Transportation Association President and CEO Thomas L. Hendricks:
"NATA thanks Speaker John Boehner for his stewardship over the House and his leadership on this important legislation. Aviation businesses depend upon certainty to create jobs and make investment decisions. This legislation addresses two threats to our industry — the ramifications of defaulting on our nation’s debts and the potential shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration. Its enactment will move us beyond the seemingly endless series of political confrontations that create drag on our economy. We call upon the Senate to swiftly take up and approve this legislation.”
