GAMA Applauds DOT Repeal of Rulemaking Roadblocks

WASHINGTON, D.C. – General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) President and CEO, Pete Bunce, issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Department of Transportation’s repeal of administrative rulemaking, guidance and enforcement procedures:

“We are appreciative of Secretary Buttigieg’s leadership to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of rulemaking and guidance procedures at the Department of Transportation. While some industries may have welcomed a dramatic slowdown in regulations under the previous administration’s philosophy, we believe the law of unintended consequences applies to the one-size-fits-all approach. The aviation industry relies on technical standards to be routinely updated through rulemaking and guidance to address safety and incorporate evolving technology. What our industry experienced over the last few years with rules and guidance being ‘shelved’ when sent from the FAA to DOT has proved to be a significant barrier to progress. We look forward to working with the Department of Transportation and FAA as the general aviation manufacturing industry works to bring innovation and new safety technology to the nation’s transportation system.”
