Senate Committee Approves NTSB Nominee

top story photo The Senate Commerce Committee on Wednesday approved the nomination of Bruce Landsberg to be a member of the National Transportation Safety Board. Landsberg created some controversy after he voiced his concerns about the 1,500-hour requirement for pilots at his confirmation hearing.

The Commerce Committee approved the Landsberg nomination by voice vote. However, a number of Democrats asked that they officially be recorded as voting against the President's pick to serve on the NTSB. Wednesday's action is another indication that there is a strong partisan divide over proposals to help address the pilot shortage by modifying the 1,500-hour rule.
