Senate to Hold FAA Nominee Hearing in 2023

New Congress will begin the process in January.

Senate Commerce Committee Chair Maria Cantwell said on Tuesday that the current Senate does not plan to hold a hearing for President Biden’s Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) nominee until after the new year. “There wasn’t enough time to meet with him and get him to the floor,” Senator Cantwell said.

President Biden nominated Phil Washington to head the FAA in July, but his confirmation process has yet to move forward since that time. In the new year, Washington’s nomination will expire, but Senator Cantwell believes the White House will likely renominate Washington and move his nomination process forward after the new Congress convenes.
