Aviation law the exception for unproductive Congress

congressPresident Obama’s signing last week of the Small Airplane Revitalization Act, which was championed by Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, is even more noteworthy because so few bills have become law this year. Fewer than 60 public laws were enacted in the first 11 months of this year, the Washington Post reported. That makes the first session of the 113th Congress the least productive ever. By far. No wonder Congress’ approval rating – 9 percent according to a Gallup poll – is at a record low.
