Local congressman highlights GA research priorities

Rep. Daniel Lipinski (D-Ill.) took the lead on educating his colleagues on the House Science and Technology Committee about the need to research alternatives to leaded avgas. Colorado Rep. Mark Udall is sponsoring a bill that would also contain research and development provisions to continue engine research, in coordination with NASA, which has the goal of enabling existing general aviation aircraft to operate with unleaded aviation fuel. "That is a provision that Mr. Lipinski has been very interested in too, and I want to thank him for his efforts on behalf of it," Udall said.
