Rep. James Oberstar, Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, is behind the newly introduced bill, H.R. 831 which bears the title "A Bill to Ensure Adequate Airline Competition between United States and Europe." Rep. Oberstar's speech in support of the bill may be read here. Needless to say, this will raise more than a few eyebrows across the Atlantic. Further discussion on this blog of the bill and its implications is forthcoming.
