Congress to consider new no-fly list for unruly passengers


WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress is taking another look at creating a new no-fly list for unruly passengers. It’s an idea that was floated last year but never got off the ground. On Wednesday, several members of the U.S. Senate and House introduced legislation to let the Transportation Security Administration ban people from flying if they’ve been convicted or fined for assaulting or interfering with airline crew members. Flight attendant unions say the measure is needed to prevent violent incidents on planes. But civil libertarians oppose a new no-fly list, saying there are already measures in place to address unruly passengers.
