NEW BILL STREAMLINES BAG CHECKS. International travelers will have a little something extra to celebrate this season--the new “No-Hassle Flying Act” passed the U.S. House last Wednesday lightens re-screening regulations from some U.S. International airports. With this new bill, officers of the Transportation Security Administration are allowed to choose if baggage from flights coming from areas where Customs and Border protection has pre-clearance operations in place. This includes airports in Canada, Ireland, and the Caribbean.
Plans released in late November reveal a new Las Vegas zipline that will have visitors jump from an 11-story-high slot machine and soar over five blocks of historic casinos. Construction on this permanent thrill ride begins in January and is expected to become a big attraction to the city.
