After 13 days of a stalemate, Congress reaches an agreement on funding the Federal Aviation Administration. Air traffic controllers and essential personnel were always on the job during the budget standoff, but all airport construction work was on hold. Collins Hemingway serves on an Aviation Committee for EDCO: he says it was a mess. “The FAA is actually shut down because of the budget fight. If not traffic controllers or essential staff, the FAA is closed. So that's the immediate problem. “ Friday the Senate is scheduled to pass the temporary FAA funding bill the House passed two weeks ago.
