WASHINGTON, D.C.—House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement after the House passed, H.R. 302, the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 under suspension of the rules.

“Today, the House passed bipartisan legislation to ensure that our Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is able to operate at its full capacity for the safety, security, and efficiency of American air travelers. For Louisiana, this legislation includes crucial disaster recovery reforms to fix the unfair ‘duplication of benefits’ rules that have plagued 2016 flood victims, and will also allow FEMA to improve its disaster mitigation efforts to help reduce the costly impact of future storms. I’m glad the House passed this strong, bipartisan legislation, and I look forward to President Trump signing it into law.”
