ALPA Urges Support of Biofuels Bill

Fuel is the number one cost for the airline industry, and skyrocketing oil prices represent a major threat to the industry and the careers of professional pilots.  Yesterday, ALPA President Captain Lee Moak sent letters of support for S. 1079 (H.R. 1847), a bill introduced by Senators Murray and Cantwell in the Senate and Congressman Inslee in the House.  This bill allows the DOD to undertake longer fuel contracts for biofuels to help provide stability for the biofuels market and allow them to come to the private market faster.
