House Approves Airport Safety Bill

Quote:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Thursday to make flying safer by transferring oversight of airport security to the federal government from the airlines.

But the lawmakers narrowly rejected a competing overhaul of aviation security passed unanimously by the Senate, which would put the nation's 28,000 airport baggage screeners on the government payroll.
