Aviation Admin. (FAA); the federal government is potentially liable for claims above that amount up to an additional $1.5 billion, adjusted for inflation, subject to congressional appropriations. As of 2012, the inflation-adjusted amount is about $2.7 billion. The Commercial Space Launch Act Amendments of 1988 (CSLA) provides for this payment, called indemnification.
