U.S. Senate Will Not Take up FAA Nomination Before 2023 -Lawmaker

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S Senate does not plan to take up President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) until next year, a key lawmaker said.

Senate Commerce Committee Chair Maria Cantwell, who heads the panel that overseas the FAA, told Reuters late on Tuesday she planned to hold a hearing for Denver International Airport Chief Executive Phil Washington to head the FAA after the new Congress convenes in January.

The job has been vacant since March 31 when Steve Dickson, who was nominated to the position by former President Donald Trump in 2019, stepped down about halfway through his five-year term.
