Default Letter from Senator Chris Coons

Dear Mr. Deal:
Thank you for contacting my office to express your support Senate Amendment 86, which was passed by unanimous consent and was included in the final Senate version of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization bill. I appreciate your taking the time to write to me about this issue. Model aviation is a hobby that has not only provided enjoyment to Americans for decades but is also be an important educational tool to motivate young people to become involved in aviation related fields and research. S. Amdt. 86 specifies that FAA regulations do not apply to model airplane activity and would allow such activity to take place in accordance with community-based safety guidelines. While the FAA reauthorization legislation that has been proposed in the House does not contain this measure, you can be sure that I will keep your views in mind as the Senate and House work together to reconcile their respective bills. Again, thank you for contacting me. I am honored to represent Delaware in the United States Senate and truly value hearing from constituents on issues of concern. My website, www.coons.senate.gov, can provide additional details about my work in the Senate, including legislation and state projects. I value your input and hope you will continue to keep me informed of the issues that matter to you.

Sincerely,
Christopher A. Coons
United States Senator

Well that's good news! Interesting his "signature" doesn't include his party (or did you leave that out?).
