Lawmakers on Wednesday pushed the FAA to take more aggressive action on NTSB recommendations regarding anti-icing requirements for low-flying aircraft.

The rules would apply mostly to commuter airlines and general aviation aircraft due to the time they spend at lower altitudes, where "instant icing" is more likely to occur.
