Texas legislature honors BoyerTexas legislature honors Boyer

The Texas House of Representatives today presented AOPA President Phil Boyer with a resolution recognizing AOPA's achievements on behalf of general aviation in Texas. Sponsored by Texas State Representative Rick Hardcastle, the resolution noted that, "Mr. Boyer is a highly effective spokesman for AOPA positions in the nation's capital and across the country," and that he has "been instrumental in the passage of such important federal legislation as the General Aviation Revitalization Act of 1994 and the Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR-21)." It also praised AOPA for "continuing to play a significant role in the promotion of general aviation and to energetically represent the interests of many Texas pilots and aircraft owners."

Following the presentation, Boyer met with Speaker of the House of Representatives James E. "Pete" Laney and members of the Texas Senate and House to discuss legislation affecting general aviation.
