LAX and Passenger Safety

Hosted by

Last week two jetliners came within 37 feet of each other, rekindling the battle over expanding Los Angeles International Airport. The Federal Aviation Administration says the northern runways are not safe enough but they lack the authority to tell local officials what to do.  Surrounding communities are against expansion, even though 5 studies said it was needed. Also tonight, the state budget imperils new mass transit projects and decongesting the freeways.
