Paralyzed Veterans of America has announced it is applauding the passage of the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 2018 (H.R. 302) through the US Senate, the organization said.
The legislation includes a ´bill of rights´ and an advisory panel for passengers with disabilities, as well as revised training and procedures for TSA screenings of people with disabilities.
According to Paralyzed Veterans of America, the number one complaint that they receive from members is related to problems with air travel. The act is designed to protect passengers with disabilities.
Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) is the only Congressionally chartered veterans service organization dedicated solely for the benefit and representation of veterans with spinal cord injury or disease. PVA has ensured that veterans receive their earned benefits; monitored their care in VA spinal cord injury units; and funded research and education in the search for a cure and improved care for individuals with paralysis.
