Gore Commission

Vice President Al Gore met with the families of airline crash victims today and said the airline industry is making an effort to deal with their concerns. Seven US airlines have agreed to quickly hand over passenger lists to the government after crashes of international flights. Also, the National Transportation Safety Board now has the authority to deal directly with families. The NTSB used that authority following last night's fatal collision of two airplanes in Quincy, Illinois. NPR's Kathleen Schalch reports.
