WASHINGTON, D.C. (WIVB) - An airline safety bill, issued in the wake of the Flight 3407 disaster in Clarence Center, is not grounded yet.
The FAA re-authorization bill was set to expire on Friday, but Congress approved an extension for a vote until August 1st. Flight 3407 families have spearheaded a crusade to enhance pilot training and other safety standards since the tragedy. The NTSB ruled pilot error as the cause of last year's crash, which claimed 50 lives.
