U.S. Representative Frank LoBiondo (R-2) today was named Chairman of the House Aviation Subcommittee by House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) for the 113th Congress.
“Congressman LoBiondo is a knowledgeable, proven leader on the Committee. I look forward to working with him to improve our aviation infrastructure and ensure the safety, efficiency and competitiveness of this critical component of our economy,” said Shuster.
Some of the issues and agencies under the jurisdiction of the Aviation Subcommittee include civil aviation policy, aviation labor, aviation commerce, safety and security, unmanned aircraft systems, and the majority of programs of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This chairmanship is of particular importance due to the aviation facilities that are located in the 2nd Congressional District including the FAA Tech Center, the TSA Security Lab, the Federal Air Marshal training facility, and the Atlantic City International Airport.
“It is an honor to receive the vote of confidence from Chairman Shuster and my colleagues to lead the Aviation Subcommittee during this challenging time for the industry and our economy. The aviation industry is a tremendous generator for our local and national economy and directly employs millions of Americans while serving as a force multiplier across the nation. South Jersey intrinsically knows the critical role of the aviation sector with thousands of residents working at the FAA Technical Center and related security facilities on the Atlantic City International Airport campus,” said LoBiondo. “My focus will be to increase the effectiveness of our aviation network, with a keen focus on improving the safety and security for all users.”
LoBiondo has been a member of the subcommittee since 1997.

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
