Several states across the country have announced their intentions to implement laws that would require airlines to provide things such as food, water and working restrooms to passengers during lengthy tarmac delays. Now, some lawmakers in the state of Washington are making a push for a law to protect airline passengers' rights.

Airlines and the Air Transport Association have spoken out against legislation in other states as well as a federal passenger rights bill, while arguing that only the federal government has the right to regulate the industry.
