BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The families of Flight 3407 fear they may have to start all overagain.
The FAA Authorization Bill and its tougher training standardsfor pilots will expire if Congress doesn't finish the conferencebill by the July 4th break. Flight 3407 families have been lobbyinghard for the bill since the tragedy in Clarence last year.
Robin Tolsma, who lost her husband, said, "Our loved ones wereso close to being home. And it's so close to passing, that I don'twant this bill to crash and burn before it gets on PresidentObama's desk, just like 3407 did. This has to pass. It's not aboutus anymore. It's about anybody who buys a ticket and flies on aregional airline."
