FAA negotiators request more time over long-term authorisation bill

US Federal Aviation Administration, which is negotiating the long-term authorisation bill, stated they need more time to work on outstanding issues following a one-month extension of aviation programs set to move in Congress in the week commencing 28-Jun-2010 (CQ Politics, 28-Jun-2010). The issue that has received the most attention involves a provision in the House-passed bill that would shift FedEx ground operations from being covered by the Railway Labor Act to the National Labor Relations Act.
