I think it still needs to voted on and signed by the President.
Congressional negotiators agreed on Thursday to exempt Missouri from restrictions on direct air service from Dallas Love Field to several states, an issue that has Texas rivals' Southwest Airlines and American Airlines locked in a bitter fight.
House-Senate lawmakers hammering out details of a spending bill for transportation and treasury programs agreed to the Missouri exemption to a 26-year-old law called the Wright Amendment.
Hang on a minute. The senate passed the exemption. House and Senate committees need to make it palatable for the House to vote on it. It then may have to go back to the Senate if there are any major changes to it. Then on to the president.
If it doesn't get too muddled up in committee it could pass in the next few months.
