In ongoing battle between birds and planes, birds lose again

August 20th, 2009 · by Garrison Frost

The State Senate today approved new legislation that will make it easier for airports to kill birds that officials deem might interfere with airplanes.¬†Senate Bill 481¬†was approved in the State Assembly earlier this year, and now goes to the Governor’s desk for his signature. The bill was introduced following the incident in New York when a U.S. Airways jetliner was forced to ditch in the Hudson River after hitting a flock of Canada Geese.
