[ARCHIVE] 2015-11-18: Amendment to Section 213(c) CATEX, as Proposed by McCain & Flake (3p)

It appears this legislation is only for show, has no teeth to compel FAA to clean up NextGen impacts.

Time and time again, we have seen both fail:

  1. airport authorities commonly stay quiet, to serve the industry; and,
  2. the FAA Administrator has a profound history of waffling every time, delaying forever, if a proposed change potentially undermines industry profits.
