The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee this week approved a bill to enhance commercial aviation security. And honoring his commitment to AOPA President Phil Boyer and AOPA members, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) did not attempt to add his general aviation security bill to the legislation.
Boyer met with Weiner September 22 to explain the substantial improvements in GA security since September 11, 2001. At the conclusion of that discussion, Weiner promised that he would "not be pursuing fixed-wing aircraft."
This completes committee action on the issue of aviation security. This bill, along with other security measures, is likely to be considered by the full House as part of legislation developed in response to the recommendations of the 911 Commission Report.
