California lawmakers will consider a bill that would require airlines to provide passengers with water, snacks, fresh air and clean restrooms if their aircraft is delayed on the tarmac for more than three hours. The Airline Passenger Bill of Rights is modeled after legislation that passed in New York. The Air Transport Association challenged the New York law and is appealing a ruling by a lower court. An ATA spokesman said the group will also oppose the proposed California law.
