Oops; House, Senate Move To Fix Typo In FAA Bill

WASHINGTON (April 30, 2013)—The U.S. Senate and House moved Tuesday to restore the missing letter to the word "accounts" in a bill that will allow the Federal Aviation Administration to withdraw its furloughs of air traffic controllers.

Lawmakers rushed to pass the bill last week before lawmakers left town for their weeklong break, but the typo held up the bill and President Barack Obama was unable to sign it.

The furloughs had caused coast-to-coast flight delays that angered thousands of travelers.

The FAA was already resuming normal operations, moving ahead despite the technical glitch in the legislation.
