The U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee's aviation subcommittee approved a bill that would provide the Federal Aviation Administration's airport improvement program with 14.8 billion dollar over four years. The bill would also reauthorize the current air transportation funding bill. The bill proposed by the House includes provisions to streamline the process for obtaining environmental permits to construct runways and other capacity projects, including making the U.S. Department of Transportation responsible for coordinating and expediting airport project environmental reviews with all federal, state, and local agencies.
