top story photo The Senate Appropriations Committee Thursday approved its version of legislation to fund DOT and FAA for fiscal year 2016. The bill includes a proposed $3.35 billion for the Airport Improvement Program and $154.4 million for the Contract Tower Program and cost-share program. The Senate bill also continues the AAAE-backed provision prohibiting FAA from requiring airports to provide cost-free space. The measure further proposes $10 million for the Small Community Air Service Development Program and would allow certain small hub airports previously ineligible for participation in the program because of a quirk in the law to apply for grants in fiscal year 2016.
