WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA), Member of the House Appropriations Committee and Chair of the Congressional Urban Caucus releases the following statement urging action to get FAA workers and contractors back on the job:


"Let's keep the conversation going. Before Congress officially begins its August recess we must take action to get some 74,000 workers back on the job. This is an important issue and I encourage our House and Senate leaders to keep talking, keep working and keep negotiating until all 74,000 employees affected by the failure of Congress to reauthorize the FAA are back on the job.

"Getting these employees back to work is vital to reducing unemployment and supporting the economic recovery."
