WASHINGTON, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA), a Member of the House Appropriations Committee and Chair of the Congressional Urban Caucus, releases the following statement concerning the Federal Aviation Administration:


"The FAA is back in business, and 74,000 American workers are back on the job. Work remains to be done to resolve the underlying issues. But this is great news on a day when other economic news has not been great.
