Senate faces uncertain future for federal aviation bill as key deadline approaches

The fate of a major federal aviation bill is uncertain in the Senate as a deadline approaches. Despite bipartisan support, disputes over key provisions have caused delays. Senators are working towards a breakthrough to prevent a lapse. One issue is adding more flights at Reagan National Airport, with some senators opposing it due to safety concerns. Senators from Maryland and Virginia are changing tactics to address this issue. Lawmakers are optimistic about reaching a resolution, but objections to proposed amendments persist. The comprehensive FAA reauthorization bill aims to address air traffic controller shortages, runway safety, and airline refund policies.
