The National Transportation Safety Board says it has made 1,025 recommendations that have yet to be implemented by other government agencies, although some date back a decade or more. "We are frustrated with recommendations that don't get implemented," said the director of the board's recommendations office. But an FAA spokeswoman pointed out that her agency must enact rules in cooperation with the White House, the Office of Management and Budget and other agencies. Unlike the NTSB, which has no regulatory authority, she said, "Every government agency that makes rules has to look at all the potential costs and benefits of the rule."
