The White House has threatened a veto of the FAA authorization legislation if it includes non-aviation funding proposals for highways, railroads and the oil-spill liability trust fund. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid maintains he is willing to meet with Minority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell to decide which amendments may be introduced to send a mutually acceptable bill to conference.
