Let freedom and the telephone ring! The Senate HAS NOT included Hang-Up Act legislation in their base/foundation FAA reauthorization bill.
Here’s the full bill:
The bill’s sponsors are the chair and ranking of the full commerce, science and transportation committee and the aviation subcommittees.
Nice job Senators!
Now the legislative process goes forward through the committee and on to the full Senate and then finally reconciliation with the House.
Let’s hope this process goes smoothly and rapidly and that no House members insist on inclusion of the dubious Hang-Up Act. For first-time readers of this blog, the Hang-Up Act is intended to outlaw the in-flight use of mobile phones for voice communications in the USA for all the wrong reasons.
