Oberstar Leans On FAA

8th District Congressman Jim Oberstar is putting pressure on the Federal Aviation Administration for what he calls lax inspection procedures. Oberstar said he will hold hearings on April 3rd to find out why some airlines were allowed to keep planes in the air that should have been grounded for maintenance and inspection. Oberstar said many FAA inspectors have given up reporting airline failures because there's such a cozy relationship between FAA management and airline management. Oberstar said his hearings may result in legislation to make sure the flying public is as safe as possible.
