On Thursday, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation considered the appointment of Interim Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) chief Michael Huerta to a full five-year term, reports The Hill.
Huerta has been temporarily leading the FAA since the former FAA chief was arrested for an alleged DWI last December and resigned his position at the time.
Desiring the appointment, Huerta told the Senate committee that he has been “steady at the wheel” of the aviation company since coming to the FAA as deputy administrator in 2012.
"In the last two years I have focused on positioning the FAA to deliver NextGen — the Next Generation Air Transportation System," he said in testimony submitted to the committee. "We recently established a new organization within the agency to focus on implementing major technology programs."
Huerta also told the committee that he was no stranger to the world of transportation.
"I have spent my entire career in transportation with rewarding professional experiences in both the public and private sectors," he said.
Huerta has found support among the members of the Senate Transportation Committee on both side of the political spectrum.
If approved by the Senate, his confirmation will go to the House for approval.
