Thursday 08 December 2011
C. - Airlines for America (A4A), the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, formerly known as the Air Transport Association, today commended Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) for introducing a bill that would prohibit U.S. aircraft operators from participating in the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) because the scheme violates international law and U.S. sovereignty. The legislation would also seek to hold operators harmless from the scheme.
The Senate bill is similar to the bipartisan legislation passed by the full House of Representatives on Oct. 25
