Clinton signs bill for airline study

April 08, 1993|By Los Angeles Times

WASHINGTON -- Attempting to revive the nation's faltering airline carriers and manufacturers, President Clinton signed legislation yesterday creating a national commission to study the industry and suggest solutions.

The 15-member National Commission to Ensure a Competitive Airline Industry will have 90 days to report back to the administration and Congress on ways to aid an industry that has lost approximately $10 billion in the last three years.

Under the bill, the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives will each appoint five voting members to the commission. The panel will also have 11 non-voting members.
