Schumer Demands Anti-Missile Technology For Passenger Jets

(New York, NY) -- New York Senator Chuck Schumer is pushing for anti-missile technology for passenger jets. He says it's critical following the shooting down of a plane over Eastern Ukraine. New York's senior senator says an anti-missile system would cost between one and two-million-dollars per jet, but Schumer says that's a small price to pay to safeguard travelers. He wants the Defense Department, the Department of Homeland Security and the FAA to study the proposal.
It costs at least 100-million dollars to build a commercial passenger plane and Schumer thinks the feds should come up with incentives to defray the cost of installing anti-missile technology.
