House Panel Revises General Aviation Land Access Measure
A House Resources subcommittee yesterday revised a bill that would assure general aviation aircraft access to federal land and the air space over that land for emergency landings, search and rescue activities and fire-fighting. The panel reported the bill to the full committee. At a markup of the national parks and public lands subcommittee, Chairman James Hansen (R-Utah) revised the bill to meet objections. Subcommittee sources said FAA is removed from the consultative process over landing strips. FAA did not want to be in the consultative process.
