I thought it was a regulatory compromise (Netjets wanted 65). Actually I thought it was legislative, which of course supersedes the regulatory process... congress injecting itself rather than letting the FAA take action (or not).

I have no idea what regs GAMA falls under, or how their flying is accounted for. the legislation was specifically targeted at Netjets.

Here's an article on it, confirms what I thought unless something changed since it was published
