The outage caused departures nationwide to be halted one morning this month, disrupting travel and drawing attention to the Federal Aviation Administrations outdated technology.

WASHINGTON The House passed legislation on Wednesday that would create a task force to study a Federal Aviation Administration alert system that went down this month, causing departing flights to be grounded nationwide.
