from By: Ryan Clark
From Oct. 17:
Recently, Democratic lawmakers proposed legislation that would require mass transit operators to be tested for obstructive sleep apnea. This move follows the NTSB's findings that a deadly 2013 passenger rail crash was the result of an engineer with an undiagnosed case of the condition, falling asleep at the wheel. Battles in Congress and in the industry have ensued, as everyone weighs in on the merit and cost of the idea of federally imposed testing and regulations.
