Senate names joint committe


The US Senate has named their members for the conference committe for the joint FAA Reauthorization Bill.

Contact them with what you support or do not support from each Bill (H.R. 658 & S. 223)

Recreational SUAS users need to get them to remove the Inhofe amendment from the Senate Bill. There are other amendments that will effect all SUAS/UAS, see my other blog for a list of the most obvilous ones.


The Senate conferees are:

 Maria Cantwell (D-WA),

Barbra Boxer (D-CA),

Bill Nelson (D-FL),

John Ensign (R-NV),

Jim DeMint (R-SC),

John Rockefeller (D-WV),

Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX),

Max Baucus (D-MT),

Orrin Hatch (R-UT).
