The White House on Tuesday criticized a bill that would reauthorize FAA funding and said the president may veto the legislation if it includes provisions that would "encumber the FAA with additional workload and divert needed resources from ongoing safety projects." Additionally, the Office of Management and Budget indicated that a veto was possible if the bill included provisions that would limit DOT efforts to manage congestion. The Senate version of the bill includes provisions that would boost oversight of the FAA's program that allows carriers to voluntarily disclose safety issues.
