FAA to weigh easing limits on electronic devices - Article Photos 1/1

FILE - In this June 18, 2013 file photo, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington. Airline passengers may get some relief from restrictions on use of personal electronic devices during takeoffs and landings, but probably not for at least months and maybe longer, industry insiders say. A special advisory committee is expected to deliver recommendations Monday to FAA calling for gate-to-gate use of some devices on some planes. But the soonest FAA is likely to implement new regulations is early 2014. McCaskill says she’ll introduce legislation to force FAA’s hand if the agency doesn’t act swiftly.
