Insider magazine says Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse is proposing a new bill that would require airlines to offer cash refunds to travelers, whose flights have been cancelled. The airlines would be required to offer a full refund within 30 days of a flight cancellation or significant delay. Over 88,000 flights have been canceled in the U.S. since the beginning of the year.

Whitehouse says, “It’s bad enough to miss out on vacation time when your flight gets canceled or an emergency pops up. You shouldn’t also have to fight tooth and nail with an airline for your legally required cash refund.”
