FAA gets another short-term funding extension

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will continue to exist on short-term funding for at least a few more weeks, but progress on a multi-year funding bill is finally being made. Both houses of the US Congress have now agreed to another stop-gap funding extension, extending funding authority for the agency until 17-Feb-2012.

The extension is the 23rd since the agency’s last multi-year funding bill expired in 2007. It avoids a repeat of last-year’s temporary shut-down of the agency as a shut-down was looming as the existing funding authorisation was due to expire at the end of the month.
