U.S. Congressman Tracey Mann Advocates for FAA Reauthorization Act: A Step Towards Strengthening American Aviation Leadership

By Trish Svoboda

Today, May 15, U.S. Congressman Tracey Mann voted in favor of moving the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Act forward to be enacted into law. The legislation was approved in the U.S. House of Representatives with a vote of 387-26. Following the vote, Rep. Mann issued a statement.

“Kansas has a deep history with aviation, and I am proud to support this legislation that keeps America as the global leader of the industry,” said Rep. Mann. “Maintaining the American gold standard of aviation requires strong leadership at the FAA that addresses some of the most challenging issues facing the industry, including workforce limitations, innovation and the development of new technology, aviation safety, and burdensome federal red-tape. This legislation addresses those issues while supporting Essential Air Service airports and policies that are crucial to the Big First.”

On May 14, Rep. Mann addressed his colleagues on the House Floor, advocating for their backing of the FAA reauthorization.

In June 2023, Rep. Mann voted in favor of the FAA reauthorization bill, known as the Securing Growth and Robust Leadership in American Aviation Act, during a session of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. In July 2023, Rep. Mann reiterated his support for the bill on the House Floor.
