It makes me happy.

Holy crap, all these parties you listed were able to AGREE on something?!

No chit.


The Wright Amendment is federal legislation enforcing interstate monopoly of DFW airport. No paid flights may be marketed or may originate from Dallas Love field which do not land in TX or the immediately adjacent states. There have been one or two exemptions added, but it'll be great to see that clear out completely.

I hope.

Still has to get processed by the US congress.

Plus, I don't know what sort of vested interests these folks have in the Wright Amendment, but I'm sure some of them would be skittish about removing a local monopoly...
