FAA Reauthorization One of the Few Major Bills to Move Forward in Congress in 2016

For the remainder of 2016, there are only two must-pass pieces of legislation remaining in Congress: (1) a massive Omnibus appropriations bill funding the federal government for fiscal year (FY) 2017, which will likely pass in the lame-duck period of November-December after the presidential election and following the enactment of a short-term Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government beginning October 1; and (2) the reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). On March 30, President Obama signed the “Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2016” into law, which extends authorization and tax authority for the FAA through July 15, 2016; FAA authorization was set to expire on March 31. This gives the House and Senate just over three months to reach consensus and pass a long-term FAA reauthorization bill before Congress recesses for seven weeks from July 16-September 6, for the Democratic and Republican National Conventions and the annual August summer recess.

For most of nearly a decade, the city of Greenville received a handsome return on its contract with Washington, D.C.- based lobbying firm The Ferguson Group. Four years after that contract was allowed to expire, the City has again hired the firm and there is reason to believe the investment could pay off again.

 – As federal lobbyists go, Fort Wayne's seem low-key and laid-back.

They don't hang out on Capitol Hill. Their offices aren't along K Street. They are more likely to be consulting with engineering officials than with congressmen.
