Senator McCaskill applauds FAA decision on PED's

Thursday, 31 October 2013 10:24 Published in Local News

Score one for the traveling public as the Federal Aviation Administration today announced the expanded use of personal electronic devices on airplanes.

Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill calls it "great news for the traveling public and a win for common sense.”  McCaskill is the Chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Protection.

The Senator says she applauds the FAA for taking the necessary steps to change "these outdated regulations" and expects the airlines to turn around quick plans for implementation.  

The FAA also announced a plan in which airlines would submit strategies for the expanded use of PEDs.  

The FAA expects those plans to be quickly approved and believes they could be largely completed by the end of the year.

There will continue to be some restrictions. For instance, talking on cell phones during flight will still be prohibited. Since joining the Senate in 2007, McCaskill has served on the Senate Committee on Commerce, which has jurisdiction over aviation and communications policy, and this year was named Chairman of the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Insurance.
