This article appeared in the St. Petersburg Times about a week ago, and I wanted to pass it along. I think it stinks!
"Peanut-free policy doesn't fly with congress again"
"And finally, there is good news for peanut lovers. Congress once again is taking a stand on your behalf.
For the second year in a row, the transportation spending bill prohibits the government from enforcing a policy that requires "peanut-free zones" on airplanes. That rule, which would have prohibited airlines from serving the snack around people with peanut allergies, was proposed last year by the Department of Transportation."
(compiled by Sara Fritz and Bill Adair of the Times Washington bureau)

Thanks alot, Congress!
