RALEIGH (AP) -- North Carolina Congressman Heath Shuler says he's worried about the captive audiences on airliners when movies are shown in the cabin.
The Democrat will offer legislation today that calls for commercial airlines to create sections on the planes where children will not be exposed to violent movies.
Shuler says it's hard for parents to tell young children not to look to at the screen.
The Family Friendly Flights Act calls for sections on commercial flights where there would not be any viewable movie screens. Shuler says the bill would allow airlines to continue showing the movies they choose on screens in other sections, as well as on individual screens.
David Castelveter with the Air Transport Association says it's up to airlines to decide which movies to show.
