There are several aviation-related hearings on Capitol Hill this week as lawmakers examine the administration's infrastructure proposal and the FY 2019 budget requests for federal agencies.
Five Cabinet secretaries, including Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, will testify before the Senate Commerce Committee at a Wednesday hearing on the administration's infrastructure proposal.
The House Transportation and Protective Security Subcommittee will also hold a hearing on Wednesday to discuss TSA's FY 2019 budget request. TSA Administrator David Pekoske will testify.
Secretary Chao will return to Capitol Hill the following day to appear at a hearing on the FY 2019 DOT budget request held by the House Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee.
