Washington (CNN) - The Senate on Thursday passed a bill to fund the Federal Aviation Administration through January, preventing a second shutdown of the agency that regulates air transportation.
By a 92-6 vote, the Democratic-controlled Senate approve the measure previously passed by the House, sending it to President Barack Obama's desk.
Wow. I think that's the second piece of legislation passed by the Senate, this entire year. The only other was the deficit ceiling increase.
doctor evil, coburn, almost got his wish again!! Sorry doc.
Why is this even an issue?
I have an idea. Why doesn't Pres Obama move all the big FAA training facilities out of Oklahoma? Let's see how big-mouthed phoney Tom Coburn reacts.
I hope this is minus the Union bashing clause.
I think that was a somwhat good idea the president should fight for longer payment bill for FAA work and not bader with this january of next year .
Do nothing congress hard at it again. TEMORARY everything. Get ready 4 another nailbitting debate again on breaking up the FAA union n january!
Wow, looks like the GOBP voted with the Dems for a change. See, they can do bipartisanship. Now they have to explain why so often they don't.
