Two U.S. Congressmen say the deal to settle the Wright Amendment is wrong, and they will not support it.

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.
