FAA, facing a March 10 court deadline, today issued a long-awaited regulatory analysis on a 2006 expansion of drug- and alcohol-testing requirements to subcontractors “at any tier.”

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit March 1 set a March 10 deadline for FAA to show cause why it should not have to comply with a three-year-old court mandate for the regulatory analysis and why the court should not stay a portion of the expanded drug- and alcohol-testing rules.

FAA sent the regulatory analysis to the Federal Register for publication on March 3. The analysis will include a 60-day comment period, the agency says, adding that the final analysis would be prepared after the review of comments. The agency plans to brief the court of its actions on March 10. [Full story]
