Washington, D.C. — The U.S. House of Representatives just approved an amendment sponsored by U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) using the appropriations process to respond to the failure of the Federal Aviation Administration to fulfill its statutory duty in assuring greater safety on commercial balloon flights. Doggett’s amendment transferred $7.5 million from the Federal Aviation Authority’s (FAA) finance and management account to the aviation safety account. This comes as the FAA continues to refuse to comply with and implement Section 318 of the FAA Reauthorization, which was signed into law on October 5, 2018. This law results from a prior Doggett amendment requiring medical certificates for commercial balloon pilots. 82 days have passed since the deadline for the FAA to act. Doggett’s safety effort was prompted by the July 30, 2016 commercial balloon crash near Lockhart, Texas, which tragically killed 16 passengers, becoming the largest balloon crash in our history and the Nation’s worst aviation disaster since 2009.
