NACA Supports Bipartisan Infrastructure Package
National Air Carrier Association President and CEO George Novak issued the following statement Wednesday, July 28, in support of the bipartisan infrastructure package being negotiated in the Senate:
NACA commends the Biden Administration and Congress for their leadership in developing today’s bipartisan infrastructure legislation. This historic bill includes $20 billion to upgrade our nation’s airports – including necessary terminal, runway and access enhancements – to meet increasing air travel demand, bolster the economic recovery, and improve the passenger experience without increasing taxes and fees. It also includes $5 billion to upgrade existing FAA air traffic control facilities, which will improve the safety and efficiency of the National Airspace System. We urge Congress to continue working on a bipartisan basis to swiftly enact this critical legislation.
