U.S. House: No user fees


September 20, 2007 - The legislation endorsed by EAA and the rest of the general aviation community to fund the FAA - HR 2881 - was approved by the House of Representatives Thursday afternoon on a 267-151 vote, setting the stage for a crucial conference debate with whatever legislation comes out of the Senate. That bill (S-1300) introduces user fees, which GA steadfastly opposes, while HR 2881 preserves GA-preferred and time-tested excise taxes as the funding mechanism for the system.
More from EAA...

Woo Hoo! That's great news. The bad news is that my representative, the same one I voted for in the last election, was part of the 151 minority. I'm going to find out why...

That said, I just got off the phone to my two Senators in an effort to influence their decision-making process.

Keep the pressure on!
