Common sense in air security. Imagine that.
Airline baggage would be able to cross the Canadian-U.S. border with less of a chance of an international incident if a bill from Sens. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) is approved. The lawmakers introduced legislation in Senate this week (S. 3542) that would ease restrictions for international luggage on flights from Canadian airports that are the equivalent of U.S. airport security. The change would will make travel between the neighboring countries much easier, the lawmakers said.
The House passed a similar version of the bill, which has been dubbed the No-Hassle Flying Act of 2012, this week.
