FAA Reauthorization Bill Passes the Senate

On May 9th, 2024, The FAA Reauthorization Bill passed the Senate just before the FAA’s authorities were set to expire on May 10th. However, the House is not expected to pass the bill until sometime around May 14th or 15th. As expected, the House has passed an extension which will provide the chamber with an additional week to get the bill passed. AMA still expects that our recreational UAS language in the bill will remain unchanged during this extension. We will be sure to provide an update once the bill passes the House and is signed into law by the President.
