CapitolWire December 2012: In the Air: International Aviation-Emissions Regulation
December 19, 2012

Washington has taken steps to keep US airlines exempt from this new EU regulation. But there is agreement on both sides of the Atlantic that an international approach to the emissions issue would be best.
