WASHINGTON—Today, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 4, the FAA Reauthorization Act:

“This is the next step in our efforts to rebuild America’s infrastructure, which is critical to job creation, economic growth, and our daily lives. Thanks to the work of Chairman Shuster and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, this package upgrades our aviation system at every opportunity. This bill will make air travel easier and safer for families, cut red tape so manufacturers can compete, help update our airports, and better prepare our communities for natural disasters. This long-term reauthorization brings the certainty our aviation industry needs to make important improvements as we continue rebuilding our infrastructure. We look forward to working with the Senate to get this initiative to the president’s desk.”
