House GA Caucus Reaches 200 Members

Nearly Half Of The Body Now On Record As Supporting General Aviation

The House General Aviation Caucus recently announced that it has surpassed 200 members, meaning nearly half of the representatives elected to the House now identify themselves as supporters of general aviation. This record number of lawmakers who recognize the significance of general aviation to local, regional and national communities and constituents comes less than one week after the previous record total of 197 House GA Caucus members was announced. The GA Caucus has grown to one of the largest such groups recognized in Washington.

"The continued growth of this caucus underscores the bipartisan recognition in on Capitol Hill that general aviation creates jobs, provides a transportation lifeline to communities across the country, helps businesses succeed and supports people and communities in times of crisis," noted NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen.

Formed in 2009, the House GA Caucus – and its companion GA Caucus in the U.S. Senate – serves as an informal group of lawmakers, formed to promote the essential role the industry plays in local communities and the national economy. Both caucuses work to inform debates about policies affecting the general aviation community.

"The growth in both caucuses shows that our industry has a strong core of support among not only incumbent lawmakers, but also among the legislators elected for the first time in last November's elections," Bolen added.

The House GA Caucus is co-chaired by Reps. Sam Graves (R-6-MO) and John Barrow (D-12-GA), while Sens. Mark Begich (D-AK) and Mike Johanns (R-NE) lead the Senate GA Caucus.
