House Transportation Committee 'monitoring' 787 investigations

The Senate panel that handles transportation issues has already raised the possibility of conducting hearings into the 787's mishaps.

"I just talked with the [aviation] subcommittee chairman, [Sen.] Maria Cantwell [(D-Wash.)] ... and I think she is interested in doing it," Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) told reporters at the Capitol earlier this week.

Rockefeller has said he supports the FAA's decision to ground the 787.
