Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.


4/25/2013--Introduced.
Reducing Flight Delays Act of 2013 - Authorizes the Secretary of Transportation (DOT), notwithstanding the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (P.L. 113-6), any other provision of law, or sequestration order, to transfer for FY2013 to any Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) appropriations account (such as the one for air traffic control operations) a certain amount from funds otherwise made available for discretionary grants-in-aid under the airport improvement program or any other FAA program.
Makes any transferred amount available immediately for obligation and expenditure as directly appropriated budget authority.
Specifies the amount to be transferred as the amount the Secretary of Transportation (DOT) determines necessary to: (1) prevent furloughs of FAA employees during FY2013; and (2) continue air traffic control towers that were operational as of January 1, 2013, under the FAA's contract tower program.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.


No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

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.
