    • Abstract:
      This is the statement of Gerald L. Dillingham, Director, Physical Infrastructure before the Subcommittee on Aviation, Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Issues, House of Representatives regarding the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA's) rulemaking process and ways to improve its efficiency. This General Accounting Office (GAO) report addresses (1) the time frames for FAA's rulemaking, (2) the 1998 reforms and their effects on the pace of FAA's rulemaking, and (3) the effectiveness of the reforms in addressing the factors that affect the pace of rulemaking. In summary, the time FAA took to formally initiate a rule in response to a congressional mandate or a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recommendation varied widely. Between fiscal years 1995 and 2000, FAA initiated most such rules within 2 years, but some rules were initiated many years later. FAA's 1998 reforms were designed to address problems affecting the pace of rulemaking, including the timing of management's involvement, the administration process, and human capital management issues. However, the reforms have not yet shortened the rulemaking process, nor have they improved the efficiency of the rulemaking process, primarily because they have not been fully or effectively implemented.
