Since its inception, The U.S. House of Representatives GA Caucus has invited the Recreational Aviation Foundation to participate in an advisory capacity to the Caucus. Throughout the year, a select group of aviation experts including the RAF, AOPA, EAA and others, is called upon to provide research information and opinion on aviation related legislative matters.
The GA Caucus typically distinguishes itself as being one of the largest on Capitol Hill. As the 113th Congress prepares to assemble, your RAF has once again been asked to provide information for the caucus . As a first order of business we have been asked to submit a list of issues that we feel are significant and to rank those issues in order of importance.
Certainly there are those issues common to all in aviation; user fees, increased regulation, avgas etc. however, this is our opportunity to voice specific thoughts and opinions as the legislative year begins.
Please take a few moments to think about this as it relates to our shared passion for recreational aviation activities.
Email your thoughts and ideas to me at:Suggestions@theraf.org
We'll consolidate those into a communication that we carry to the first meetings.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts and sharing those with Congress in the new session.
