ARTICLE: ALPA to Senate: Fast-Track Huerta Confirmation as FAA Administrator

111512c

As noted here before, it is entirely appropriate for the Senate to delete the “Acting” from Mr. Huerta’s title. The point of the amendment to the authorization of the position of the Administrator to include a 5 year term was to create continuity for the FAA, to create expectations among the career staff that this political appointee will be occupying the office for the foreseeable future.

The above picture is from his June 22 hearing and no substantive objections to his candidacy were expressed there. Before the Congress closes its 2012 session, the nomination of Administrator Huerta should be confirmed.
