ThroughTheFence.org is reporting legislation to reverse FAA Airport Compliance Manual (ACM) Order 5190.6b language has been submitted in both the House and Senate. ACM Order 5190.6b labeled as incompatible use any “through the fence” agreement at an airports receiving federal funds. Many in the industry called bunk to that idea. None louder than ThroughTheFence.org founder Brent Blue.

House Bill H.R. 8415 was introduced by Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO) and Rep. Leonard Boswell (D-IA). On the Senate side, Senate Bill H.R. 1586 Amendement #3465 was sponsored by Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) and co-sponsored by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR).

Be sure to contact your Congressmen and Senator and urge them to support this important legislation.

    Representative Boswell is a Democrat, not a Republican, and you neglect to list the party of the Senators, Wyden is a liberal Democrat, leaving the impression that it’s only Republicans helping airplane owners. The fact is, when it comes to general aviation we get far more support from the dems than the reps – if it’s a fight between the little guy and the big airlines – like the current FAA bill, we get. Far more support from the democrats, surprising as that is.

    If you want to move “an important bill” it helps if you know who your friends are

  2. Ed. Thank you for the corrections. I’ve updated the post. Chalk this one up to going a little too fast for my own good.
