With the Senate stalemate over FAA reauthorization and its attendant funding provisions nearing one year, some congressional observers are predicting that no agreement will be reached until after the next President and a new Congress take office in January.

The Aerospace Industries Association, which former FAA Administrator Marion Blakey now heads, said that with competing legislative priorities in a contentious election year, additional extensions could jeopardize final passage before the end of the 110th Congress, now set for late September.
