U.S. Senator Jerry Moran, ranking member of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Aviation, expressed his satisfaction over the approval of his proposed bill, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Act of 2044. This legislation was put forward by Sen. Moran in collaboration with the heads of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Sens. Maria Cantwell, Ted Cruz, and Tammy Duckworth. The bill is anticipated to receive the green light from the U.S. House of Representatives in the coming week, after which it will be sent to the President for final approval.

Kansas, known as the Air Capital of the World, leads the way in aviation research, development, and technologies. This leadership is set to continue and contribute further to the broader aviation industry, thanks to this legislation, as stated by Sen. Moran. He expressed his satisfaction that the bill includes many of his priorities. These include additional resources to strengthen the aviation workforce, investments for infrastructure at airports in rural areas, crucial safety improvements, and innovative research and development. This ensures that both Kansas and the United States maintain their leading positions in the aviation and aerospace sectors
