Graves To Chair Transportation And Infrastructure Committee
U.S. Representative Sam Graves, R-Mo., has been appointed to chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
According to AV Web, “one of my highest priorities is a bipartisan, long-term reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Administration and aviation programs,” Graves said. “As a professional pilot, I know firsthand just how important a strong U.S. aviation system is in connecting our large, small, and rural communities to each other and the rest of the world. Aviation is a major sector of our economy, and we must ensure our Nation remains the world’s gold standard in safety and at the forefront of incorporating new technologies into the system.”
