WASHINGTON (AP) Both houses of Congress have voted to end the furloughs of air traffic controllers that are blamed for delaying hundreds of flights.
The House has approved the bill by a vote of 361 to 41, one day after the Senate passed it. The Federal Aviation Administration has furloughed the controllers as part of government-wide spending cuts.
The bill would let the FAA use money from airport improvement and other accounts to end the furloughs.
