HR 4 Further Amended and Passed in House – FAA Authorization

Today the House finished consideration of the amendments cleared by the House Rules Committee for HR 4, the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018. They then passed the bill by a strongly bipartisan vote of 393 to 13; the No votes were nearly evenly split between Republicans and Democrats.

There were two remaining amendments from those I described earlier left to be considered today. Amendment #111 (FEMA emergency response plan support) was passed by a voice vote as part of en block amendment 4. Amendment #98 (FAA artificial intelligence report) was not offered during the consideration of the bill either today or yesterday.

The Senate will probably take up the bill with a substitute language amendment that will address a number of different issues with some language in common. This typically would lead to a conference committee to work out the differences between the two bills.
