The bill addresses the regulatory problems that challenge the general aviation industry. Outdated, inefficient regulations have led to a decline in the sales of new, small, general aviation airplanes. Over the last 18 months, the FAA Part 23 Reorganization Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC), which is composed of aviation authorities and industry representatives from around the world, has worked to create a regulatory environment that will contribute significantly to revitalizing the health and safety of new and existing small airplanes. SARA requires the implementation of the Part 23 ARC recommendations by the end of 2015.
H.R. 1848 streamlines the certification process for small airplanes. This will make the certification process more efficient and effective, while also protecting the FAA’s safety oversight role. H.R. 1848 directs the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to reorganize certification requirements for safety advancements of small airplanes. The requirements will improve the safety of small airplanes as well as foster their development. The bill requires the FAA Administrator to issue a final rule that includes four primary objectives. First, it will create a regulatory regime that focuses on small airplane safety. Second, it will set broad objectives to facilitate small airplane innovation and technology adoption. Third, it will replace prescriptive requirements in current FAA rules with performance-based regulations. Finally, it will clarify how safety objectives will be met by small airplane safety designs.

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
