The U.S. Senate Wednesday approved a five-year reauthorization for the Federal Aviation Administration, sending a bill previously passed by the U.S. House of Representatives to the White House for President Donald Trump’s signature. 

The bill passed by a vote of 93-6. 

Sen. Jerry Moran, (R-Kan.), said in an emailed statement on the reauthorization passage that the bill will help provide new certainty for the state’s vital aviation industry. 

“After years of negotiations, this long-term, bipartisan and bicameral FAA extension is welcome news for travelers, aerospace manufacturers and industry innovators,” Moran said. “Not only does this reauthorization elevate over 40,000 Kansans who make a living manufacturing, operating and servicing the aircraft industry, but it includes important provisions I championed to close the aviation skills gap and bring more women into this field.”
