Commentary and Opinions

By Steve Bittenbender As the Transportation Secretary waits on the findings from a task force looking at how to establish a registration system for unmanned aircraft, a public policy organization is calling on Congress to take additional action to help make the skies safer. The American Leadership and Policy Foundation said Congress should consider requiring background checks performed on people who purchase drones and the components to make such unmanned machines. A licensing and certification process also should be examined.
Arlington, VA, October 28 - Today, the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) applauded the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives' passage of short-term highway funding legislation that, among other provisions, extends the deadline for railroads to implement positive train control (PTC) technology that would prevent train collisions and derailments caused by speeding.
By Joshua Breisblatt Last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released a yearly report on the number of use of force incidents. The report stated that use of force incidents by officers and agents were down 26 percent from the previous year, from 1,037 in Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 to 768 in FY 2015.
Washington, DC, September 11 - Today, the nation marks the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that took the lives of some 3,000 Americans. In the 14 years that have passed, the world has become an even more dangerous place, while in many ways our defenses against another major terrorist attack have been weakened, warns the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).
