Keating Co-Sponsored Amendment Passes U.S. House

The U.S. House of Representatives, late last week, passed H.R.4, the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization. Included in the legislation was an amendment sponsored by 9th District Congressman Bill Keating and Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan.

The amendment, according to a Keating news release, would direct the FAA to lead coordinated efforts between government, educational institutions, labor organizations, and the private sector to regularly evaluate workforce priorities and ensure aviation maintenance training programs are preparing the next generation of the aviation workforce to fill the types of jobs the industry needs.

The Keating-Ryan Amendment also directs the U.S. Government Accountability Office to make evidence-based recommendations on how to best strengthen and expand aviation training programs by addressing public funding, equipment, and other needs.
