Allowing Both Sides To Negotiate, Without Taking Sides

My bill simply stops the clock and allows both sides, the FAA and the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, to resume fair negotiations. It does not take a position on which side should prevail or what the terms should be. I am confident that additional negotiations will result in an agreement, but if the two sides cannot reach agreement, the matter can go before the Federal Service Impasses Panel, which has the ability to impose contract terms.
