Cantwell named of chair of aviation subcommittee
U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., has been named chair of the Senate aviation subcommittee.
The appointment was announced Monday during a news conference by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on a reauthorization bill for the Federal Aviation Agency. Accompanying Reid were Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.V., and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.
The Senate Aviation Operations, Safety, and Security Subcommittee has jurisdiction over civil aviation and the FAA. Its parent committee is the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.
At the press conference, Cantwell said passage of the FAA reauthorization bill is essential to modernize America's aging air traffic control system.
