Thune’s Bipartisan Aviation Bill Would Keep Airline Passengers Safe
“Airline passengers deserve more transparency, and the future of aviation needs a plan. And we have one in the U.S. Senate.”
WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, today released a brief video outlining his vision for the future of aviation. Thune is the lead sponsor and bill manager of S. 2658, the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 2016, which is under consideration in the Senate this week. Enhancing aviation security has been a priority for Thune, and his amendment that would take important steps toward protecting the traveling public and tightening the vetting process for airport workers was recently added to S. 2658.
