Congressmen Say They Will Not Support Wright Amendment

Two U.S. Congressmen say the deal to settle the Wright Amendment is wrong, and they will not support it. Representatives Ralph Hall and Sam Johnson say they oppose the agreement between Dallas, Fort Worth, Love field and DFW Airport. The sticking point is the part of the deal that would keep cities within 80 miles of DFW from offering passenger service.

Bills in the house and senate were expected this week, but could be delayed in light of this new debate.
