Senate postpones aviation manufacturing hearing

The Senate has postponed a hearing that was scheduled for Tuesday on boosting aviation manufacturing in the U.S.

The Senate's Aviation subcommittee was scheduled to meet Tuesday afternoon to discuss "maintaining U.S. leadership in the global [aviation] marketplace," according to announcement from the panel that was released last week.

The panel now says the meeting will be rescheduled, though a make-up date has not yet released.

Susan Kurland, Department of Transportation's assistant secretary for aviation and international affairs, and officials from Boeing; Airlines for America; the General Aviation Manufacturers Association; and the AFL-CIO's Transportation Trades Department were all scheduled to testify.
