President Obama signed legislation Wednesday to extend funding of the FAA through July 15, thereby avoiding a shutdown of the agency.

His signature came one day ahead of the expiration of the previous FAA extension, which went into effect on Oct. 1.

The Senate is expected to consider a more substantial FAA reauthorization bill this month. The bipartisan measure would address a gamut of issues, including new consumer protections for airline passengers and new regulations for drones. It would fund the FAA until through September 2017.
