Last night the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee passed its chairman's FAA authorization bill, which includes ATC privatization, by a 32-25 vote. Pretty big margin. As I understand it, one Republican, Todd Rokita of Indiana, voted against.

Chairman Shuster has been very effective at pushing this through and has said he wants to bring it to the House floor in July.

The Senate Commerce Committee is to consider its FAA reauthorization bill today. It's believed that there is not much support for privatized ATC there.

So, it's probably still unlikely that it will come to pass this year. But I think those who have a stake (I'm especially looking at you, AOPA) are way too laid back and sanguine about this issue. Until two days ago, AOPA's posture was "We don't know what all the fuss is about - we don't hear our members complaining about ATC." Totally outmaneuvered by the A4A.
