WASHINGTON — A bipartisan Senate plan to end the partial shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration has fallen apart as the cost to the government and to workers mounts.

Senators said the collapse of the plan late Monday means Congress could leave town for its August recess without resolving the shutdown, now in its second week.

That would leave the issue hanging until Congress returns in September. Senators said the government will lose about $1.2 billion in uncollected airline ticket taxes.

The Democratic-controlled Senate and the Republican-controlled House are at odds of over proposals to cut rural air service subsidies and change federal labor law to make it more difficult for airline workers to unionize.
