House T&I and Senate Commerce Committee Leaders Applaud Passage of Comprehensive Aircraft Certification Reform and Safety Legislation | The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure

Three months after T&I Dems released their final report on the Boeing 737 MAX and introduced legislation to address many of its conclusions, there’s great news.

Congress delivered on Chairs Peter DeFazio, Congressman Rick Larsen and T&I’s promise to enhance aviation safety in the wake of the Boeing 737 MAX crashes.

Chair DeFazio remarked on the work that resulted in the “Aircraft Certification, Safety, and Accountability Act” that cleared Congress.

“This historic legislation is a major step to prevent the certification of substandard aircraft and avoiding future crashes,” said Michael Stumo, whose daughter Samya died in the Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crash.

This law will help ensure similar tragedies never happen again.

Less than 2 years after the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure launched an investigation into the Boeing 737 MAX, the comprehensive bill that addresses the findings of our final report has passed with bipartisan and bicameral support.

Now it goes to the president’s desk to be signed into law. https://fb.watch/2xLNBcq3sm/

Today, Chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO) joined Chair of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation Roger Wicker (R-MS) and Ranking Member Maria Cantwell (D-WA) to applaud final passage of historic and comprehensive aviation safety legislation—the Aircraft Certification, Safety, and Accountability Act—to reform and strengthen the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) aircraft certification process, which was included as part of the omnibus spending bill. The proposed changes come after the conclusion of multiple reviews and investigations into the FAA’s certification of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, which suffered two crashes in the span of five months that killed 346 people.

Congress must support transit systems to prevent irreversible harm to transit workers, the economy, and our way of life. Without emergency funding, public transit systems will be forced to further reduce service and routes and implement labor cuts that will devastate families and communities for years to come. The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure is fighting for much needed COVID relief to support transit agencies and workers. #SavePublicTransit

In May, @TransportDems requested records on how the CDC responded to #COVID19 on Carnival cruise lines to protect passengers and staff. After 7 months, the Committee is still waiting on the production of those records from @CDCgov and @HHSGOV.

Today, T&I called on them to deliver.

In a new letter to the @CDCgov and @HHSGov, @TransportDems Chairs @RepPeterDeFazio and @RepSeanMaloney reveal only 180 pages of records have been delivered. These agencies must produce all requested records to T&I and explain their long delay.

Pearl Harbor: 5 things you didn’t know about the Coast Guard that day « Coast Guard COAST GUARD COMPASS

Today, we remember the lives lost 79 years ago at #PearlHarbor.

@TransportDems, which has jurisdiction over the U.S. Coast Guard, is honoring their legacy by ensuring the @USCG has the support it needs to fulfill missions at home and abroad. https://coastguard.dodlive.mil/2014/12/pearl-harbor-5-things-you-didnt-know-about-the-coast-guard-that-day/

While most know that Coast Guard Cutter Taney took part in the battle of Dec. 7, 1941, with the attacks on Pearl Harbor, many don’t realize that the Coast Guard had quite a number of units and personnel who took part in the U.S. defense of Hawaii on that Sunday.
