Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today:
“I am pleased that we were able to resolve the major obstacles to an agreement in a manner that protects American workers, and clears the way for a long-term extension of the Federal Aviation Administration. While some issues remain, there is no reason we cannot resolve them in the coming days and avoid any risk of another FAA shutdown.
“Every issue does not have to be a fight. This is a good example of the common-sense results that Democrats and Republicans can produce when they work together, and put the interests of the American people ahead of scoring political points.”
