|Washington, DC, January 16, 2013 – National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO Ed Bolen issued the following statement today, in regard to the appointment of Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-2-NJ) as Chairman of the House Transportation & Infrastructure (T&I) Committee’s Subcommittee on Aviation, which was announced today by T&I Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-9-PA):
“Congressman LoBiondo is an outstanding choice for Chairman of the Aviation Subcommittee, as he has a solid understanding of the industry, in part because his Congressional district is home to several significant aviation facilities, including the Federal Aviation Administration’s Tech Center, the Transportation Security Administration’s Security Lab, the Federal Air Marshal training facility and the Atlantic City International Airport. He is keenly aware of the essential role that all aviation, including general aviation, plays in job creating jobs, fueling economic growth and connecting communities. He also has a firm grasp of the industry’s priorities, including the need to continue development of a Next Generation air traffic system, so that America retains its world leadership position in aviation. Our congratulations to Congressman LoBiondo, and we look forward to working with him on policies to foster the industry’s growth.”
