Gillibrand, Schumer Call For Change Following Limo Tragedy

Albany, N.Y. - Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer are calling for changes in the aftermath of a limousine crash in Schoharie that killed 20 people.

The New York lawmakers say the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration needs to put new regulations in place for stretch limousines.  Those include looking at how those vehicles are built, investigating ways to improve passenger safety and determining if limo drivers need to undergo more extensive training.   

The October 6th tragedy was the country's deadliest transportation accident since 2009.
