H.R. 4441 (114th): Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization Act of 2016

About the bill

Aviation reform bill would privatize air traffic control

A new bill, which may be Congress’s biggest reform to the aviation and airline industry since 1978, would privatize much of the industry including air traffic control.

H.R. 4441 -- the Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization Act -- was introduced last month by Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA9), chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. The bill’s most controversial provision would remove the approximately 30,000 air traffic controllers from Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) control to a private not-for-profit organization.
