FAA wants to speed approval process for commercial drones

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 03:52
The Federal Aviation Administration is seeking ways to speed up the approval process for commercial drone operations, but its efforts have been hindered by its lack of authority to review multiple applications on a group basis, the FAA chief said on Tuesday. FAA Administrator Michael Huerta told a U.S. House aviation subcommittee that the agency could better address a backlog of 450 requests from companies seeking exemptions to use commercial drones if it could approve a class of applications that have similar circumstances. During that period, companies can continue to apply for exemptions to use drones under strict rules. “The agency has very limited ability to grant blanket exemptions to whole classes of users.

Former Rhode Island speaker pleads guilty to corruption charges

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 03:11
The former speaker of Rhode Island's statehouse pleaded guilty on Tuesday to federal charges relating to alleged corruption, admitting he used campaign funds to buy baubles at Tiffany and accepted more than $50,000 in bribes, according to officials and court papers. Democrat Gordon Fox has accepted a plea deal under which he will serve three years in federal prison for bribery, wire fraud and filing a false tax return during his two decades in office, a tenure that ended abruptly in March 2012 when he resigned three days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided his home and office. "His corrupt conduct has resulted from his removal from high office, and deservedly so," Peter Neronha, the U.S. Attorney for Rhode Island, told reporters on Tuesday. "When you violate the public trust, you shouldn't get a second chance." Fox used some $108,000 in donations to his campaign fund to make payments on his mortgage and car loan, as well as to shop at retailers including Tiffany & Co, Urban Outfitters and Wal-Mart, Neronha said.
