House subcommittee approves $13.3 billion for FAA next yearHouse subcommittee approves $13.3 billion for FAA next year

The House Transportation appropriations subcommittee yesterday approved the annual funding bill for the Department of Transportation for the 2002 fiscal year that begins October 1. The subcommittee's legislation recommends $13.3 billion for the FAA, a five-percent increase over current funding and consistent with the levels established under last year's AIR-21 legislation that unlocks the aviation trust fund. The full House Appropriations Committee is expected to approve the bill next week. The House of Representatives will consider the funding bill the week of June 25.
