House approves FAA funding bill by unanimous consent

The House on Friday morning quickly approved legislation by unanimous consent that would extend taxes that fund the Airport and Airway Trust Fund through July 22. The bill, which helps fund the Federal Aviation Administration, was approved in order to avoid the expiration of these taxes on June 30.

A longer-term extension remain in doubt, as House Republicans are looking to cut these funds, and favor language that would make it more difficult to form air and rail unions.
