S. 1994 (104th): Federal Aviation Reauthorization Act of 1996

An original bill to amend title 49, United States Code, to reauthorize programs of the Federal Aviation Administration, and for other purposes.

The bill’s titles are written by its sponsor.

The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations, which set overall spending limits by agency or program, and authorizations, which direct how federal funds should (or should not) be used. Appropriation and authorization provisions are typically made for single fiscal years. A reauthorization bill like this one renews the authorizations of an expiring law.
