On May 21, the FAA proposed a significant rewrite of the repair station regulations. The proposal called for wholesale changes to the avionics industry with damaging and costly repercussions.
After the NPRM was issued last spring, the AEA immediately developed a written comparative analysis of the proposed rule and conducted three informational webinars designed to educate AEA member businesses on the potential changes coming to their Part 145 operations. The webinars also helped members prepare and submit comments. More...
The U.S. House of Representatives will consider legislation on Bill SA2060 during this year's lame-duck session of Congress, which is an amendment to S.1789 that would reform the United States Postal Service due to its serious financial situation. A portion of this proposed bill includes added language regarding limiting the travel of federal agencies. If approved, this amendment would restrict all federal agencies, including the Federal Aviation Administration, to attending only one conference during each fiscal year.
The American Society of Association Executives recently delivered a letter to congressional leaders expressing concerns with the negative impact of SA2060. The ASAE has creative an online action alert to help personalize a message to members of Congress. Click here

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been supporting clean-up efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. AEA members who are affected, and who may still be in clean-up mode, should pay heed to the OSHA guidance about protecting employees from hazards.
With the passage of time, it is easy to forget about the hazards that remain in the wake of the storm. It is particularly important to remember that new hazards can also arise, like contamination hazards. Businesses should be cognizant of these hazards and should take steps to protect employees from the hazards.
OSHA has emergency aid for both employees and businesses. Click here
for a list of emergency aid available to those affected by the storm.
AEA's sympathies go out to our affected members.
If you need to contact OSHA for an emergency situation, please call the toll-free hotline at 1-800-321-OSHA.
