Sen. Cantwell and Sen. Ayotte will lead Aviation Subcommittee

Congratulations to Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) and Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), who will serve as Chair and Ranking Member of the Commerce Committee’s Aviation Subcommittee in the 113th Congress.

Sen. Cantwell also served as Chair of the subcommittee during the 112th Congress.  During this time the Senator championed the development of advanced biofuels, was a strong proponent for the reauthorization of the FAA, and worked with ALPA to reform aircraft financing at the Ex-Im Bank.

Sen. Ayotte has also been a friend to pilots during her time in the Senate, supporting critical legislation to reauthorize the FAA.  Sen. Ayotte also brings personal experience to the realm of aviation policy as her spouse is a former military pilot.  ALPA looks forward to working with both Senators on a productive aviation agenda in the 113th Congress.
