Congress Approves Bill To End Airport Delays
U.S. Congress has approved a bill that will halt the hundreds of daily delays made by air-traffic controllers throughout the country, according to the Associated Press.
Friday, the House of Representatives passed the measure with ease; a vote of 361-41 was found. The Senate approved the measure on the afternoon prior.
According to the AP, The Federal Aviation Administration has furloughed the controllers as part of the government-wide, $85 billion spending cuts called the sequester.
Republican lawmakers have accused the Obama administration of using the furloughs for political control on cut-backs. Democrats largely went along with the bill but said all the cuts should be lifted.
