A federal aviation rulemaking committee, which is comprised of representatives from industry and government, is expected to release a recommendation to the Federal Aviation Administration this week that would allow air travelers to use personal electronic devices below 10,000 feet. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., has been a staunch advocate of the easing of these restrictions. "Knowing you all are interested in Senator McCaskill's ongoing work to loosen restrictions on iPads and Kindles (etc.) during takeoff and landing -- wanted to make sure you saw that recommendations from the FAA's advisory committee is due out in the coming days," her office said in a statement.
