McCain introduces bills on first day back

Phoenix Business Journal reports that John McCain introduced these bills today:

• Lifting restrictions on long-haul flights at Washington Reagan National Airport and New York LaGuardia Airport. McCain has long sought to lift regulations that restrict West Coast flights out of those two airports.

• Expanding federal powers to investigate knock-off Native American crafts and art. That bill, co-sponsored by U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., would increase federal penalties for fraudulent sales of the counterfeit items.

• Establishing a national board to regulate boxing in the U.S. McCain has sought previously to impose federal oversight on the sport.

• Making the federal research and development tax credit permanent. The federal RD tax break is temporary and requires congressional extensions.
