Can you comment on the effect of government''s proposed rule that guide, hearing or service dogs unable to fit in the limited airline cabin space be shipped in cargo or require the purchase of a second seat?.

To separate disabled people from the benefits of their assistance dogs, and to thus force a break in the partner/dog bond, is unthinkable. Moreover, paying for a second seat is a crushing financial burden.To protest against these outrageous recommendations, contact your congressperson and Norman Mineta, the Secretary of Transportation, by mail at 400 7th Street SW, Washington, DC 20590, via e-mail at or by phone at (202) 366-4000.
