ABSTRACT
Reports that Airport and Airway Trust Fund excise taxes that expired at the end of 1996 were reinstated effective March 7, 1997, but they are only effective until September 30. Hopes by aviation trade groups that temporary nature of reinstatement will force Congress to consider a long-term commitment to the taxes.
