Chair DeFazio Statement on Resignation of FAA Administrator Steve Dickson

WASHINGTON, DC Chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Peter DeFazio (D-OR) issued the following statement after Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Administrator Steve Dickson announced his resignation effective March 31, 2022.

“While Administrator Dickson and I didn’t always see eye to eye, I thank him for his dedicated service to our country during such a challenging time for aviation. President Biden must now nominate a new leader committed to the highest standards of aviation safety, which means someone who will aggressively implement our landmark certification reform legislation, hold Boeing accountable for the tragic consequences of their decision to put profits over people when rolling out the 737 MAX and ensure the safe coexistence of 5G wireless service and aviation.”
