Club for Growth — Dumb Proposal 30,000 Feet in the Air

If something is annoying, make it illegal! From USA Today:

Tired of overhead bins stuffed to the point of bursting, some frequent fliers say they would welcome a strictly enforced limit on the size of carry-ons that is being proposed in Congress. Legislation proposed by Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., would set a federal standard for the maximum size of bags a passenger can carry on board – a decision currently left to each airline.

“It’s clear if anything is going to be done, it’s going to take an act of Congress to do it,” says Lipinski, whose district includes Chicago’s Midway Airport. “The airlines are not enforcing their own restrictions that they have on the books right now … and that causes problems.”
