March 6, 2000


Agreement Reached on Aviation Bill At press time, House and Senate negotiators reached an agreement on a multi-year aviation bill, providing $40 billion over three years for airport investment and FAA operations. It also provides for the first time that airline user fees and taxes that flow to the Aviation Trust Fund will be used only for aviation construction projects. Local airports will be allowed to raise Passenger Facility Charges by $1.50, up to a maximum of $4.50 per passenger per airport. The Conference report is now being finalized, with final action by the full House and Senate as early as this week. second_line
