NBAA Hails Passage of Compromise U.S. Budget

NBAA welcomed a bipartisan U.S. budget agreement approved yesterday by Congress that averts another near-term government shutdown. The Senate yesterday passed the budget measure, which sets funding for all federal agencies. The House approved the same budget package last week. “Avoiding another government shutdown is a key concern for NBAA and the business aviation community,” the association said. “Because business aviation is more regulated than other industries, the most recent shutdown [in October] had a far more dire impact on business aviation than on other industries.”
