Many questions about money remain after restoring funding for FAA - New York Times

Democratic and Republican leaders in Congress, it is clear on Friday, who do not have the battle was now made. The Bill signed by President Obama within hours of its approval into law ends on Sept. 16.

The cost is of course the $388 million, of the American Association of airport executives, calculated in lost revenue from ticket and fuel taxes, which the Federal Government was able to gather during the shutdown.

And the salaries of around 3,960 F.A.A. workers who have been working for two weeks and have not ensure was that they could be back numbers.

The Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood, said Friday that "as a matter of fairness, we also everything that we can pay-back will do the Congress of our study accounts staff with the available, that they deserve." The 40 airport safety inspectors who were required to during the closure work have back pay promised.

Thousands lost more construction workers income, because the F.A.A. more than 250 of their own construction projects stopped, and crews asked many airports work at the airport improvement to stop efforts which they were funding from his own pocket, with the expectation, that they F.A.A. would be repaid by the

While revenue on the airline ticket control lost, the Government get passengers, who paid these tax refunds, not the internal revenue service, said Friday. That reversed its earlier position, the passengers for refunds could be considered, if she had paid the tax before shutting down the F.A.A. on a ticket, which was used in the past two weeks.

"The dead end was an unnecessary burden for local economies around the country at a time, when we cannot not policy to get to our economic recovery," Mr Obama Friday said in a statement.

While some of the economy to benefit from the return will be work of those shut, the effects were not so great be how many politicians are drawn up. Repeated claims that 70,000 or more construction workers because of the shutdown F.A.A. had lost their jobs were applied almost certainly too high.

The figure from the associated General contractors of America, the last month estimated that 70,000 "construction and associated jobs" in a F.A.A. shutdown have been compromised. The estimate was based on research by Professor Stephen fuller, George Mason University, including 24,000 workers, 11,000 workers in "Service and supply companies" and 35,000 jobs, that "The truck dealer in the city be undermined in the wider economy out of the lunch car close to the job site."

Every nuance in this estimate has been in the parade of dueling news conferences and press releases, the fault of Democrats and Republicans used to cast for the F.A.A.-dead end by pointing finger across the course quickly lost. Also according to a CNN.com article the idea on Thursday morning debunked, that work had lost 70,000 workers, to quote the figure Democrats and Republicans.

The financing is provisional passed unanimous with the approval of the Senate on Friday the 21st short-term measure, which passed by Congress, since the last long-term Bill 2007 expired. The House and the Senate have passed long-term measures this year, and there are only about a dozen differences between the two bills. Could that be big enough, however, to keep a long term agreement on ice.

Senator Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, which is majority leader, deals with one of these problems on Friday, when he said that the F.A.A.-employees from work was forced, "Because Republicans have been keep as their jobs to try hostage and jam by a favor for CEO of the airline."

He was referring to Delta Air lines, lobbying has run National Board of mediation usually rolled back Republicans, which makes it easier for unions to organize airline workers. Delta said this week that it had never pushed shutdown for F.A.A.

Representative John L. MICA, a Florida Republican Chairman of the House Committee is transport its own warning fired on Friday.

"Which refuses to negotiate Senate on some outstanding issues, they can be sure that each tool is used to available to ensure that a long-term Bill into law is signed."
