The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) last month welcomed U.S. Representative Marc Veasey (D-TX) as the new Co-Chair of the bipartisan U.S. House General Aviation Caucus. Representative Sam Graves (R-MO) will continue to serve as the other Co-Chair.
The House General Aviation Caucus serves as a forum for highlighting and educating members of Congress about general aviation and its important contributions to the U.S. economy. Established in 2009, the House General Aviation Caucus holds regular briefings, events, and other activities to ensure members and their staffs stay up-to-date on the issues facing the general aviation community.
“We are delighted that Congressman Veasey—with his strong understanding of general aviation and manufacturing issues—will join Congressman Graves in this key leadership role in the 114th Congress,” GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce said. “Congressman Veasey spoke eloquently at GAMA’s General Aviation Jobs Rally in Dallas, Tex. this past March about the significant economic and jobs impact of general aviation manufacturing on his district and the nation. We look forward to working closely with him on issues important to the general aviation community, such as streamlining the certification process, enhancing safety, and promoting policies that sustain manufacturing. Congressmen Graves and Veasey will be a powerful team to lead the Caucus in the 114th Congress.”
