U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita visited the police department here on Wednesday to learn more about local government and what they do for the community.
Rokita said that the FAA could direct its focus to more important matters and there could be more, safer pilots. Rokita said that he and other lawmakers will keep the pressure up on the rulemaking process, but noted that even if the FAA proposed rules aren’t what pilots want, the legislative effort continues.
HAF’s Associate Director of Government Relations, Jay Kansara, liaised with community leaders and other major Indian American organizations to enable an unprecedented 33 Members of Congress and Governor Nikki Randhawa Haley to both attend the event as well as participate in a private meeting with the Prime Minister organized by the Embassy of India.*
“School Choice is an important foundation supporting our Hoosier and national economy,” said Rokita. “As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education, I’m helping to make sure every student makes his or her unique contribution.”
Rokita met with nine of the company's employees to talk about issues related to Red Tape Rollback, a program he said thrives on receiving feedback from constituents regarding what they feel are examples of excessive regulation so that his office can work to address them.
Rokita’s office supported the airport’s push for expansion after a visit. “We immediately saw how organized everyone was,” Rokita said. “The least we could do was get on the phone and start calling. “We all had our heart in this because we know how important it is for economic development.”

Todd Rokita (R-Ind.), an AOPA member, said in the Sept. 18 episode that efforts to reform the third class medical are moving forward: Additional co-sponsors have signed on to the bill, which would lift the burden of the third class medical from many pilots, and the FAA has promised rules addressing medical reform. Lawmakers will “keep up the flank” to make sure reform happens, he said.
