House Committee to Consider DOT/FAA Funding Bill

top story photo The House Appropriations Committee will consider a FY 2019 spending bill for DOT and its component agencies, including FAA, on Wednesday morning.

The bill proposes $17.7 billion overall for FAA, including an additional $500 million for the Airport Improvement Program on top of the $3.35 billion in regular AIP funding as well as $168 million for the Contract Tower Program and Contract Tower Cost-Share Program.

The committee notes that the House bill includes a $542 million increase for the Department of Transportation in FY 2019 and points out that "the allocation reflects the second year of the bipartisan budget agreement, and again targets resources to rebuild our nation's infrastructure, including airports, roads, bridges, and rail."
