Pete Buttigieg, Staff Would Have To Fly Commercial Under Hill Plan

  • Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., filed a bill Wednesday that would require Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his staff to fly commercial until a Southwest Airlines debacle and a Federal Aviation Administration computer glitch that caused thousands of flight cancelations Wednesday were fully investigated and resolved.
  • The bill, Commercial Cabins for Cabinet Members, “would require the Secretary of Transportation to only fly commercial, just like every other American, until the FAA reauthorization is completed,” Mace said in a statement announcing the bill. “This should provide enough time to investigate Southwest and the FAA.”
