CHICAGO, Ill. - Over in the Windy City, lawmakers are considering a measure to determine who can board a passenger plane.

It comes after a passenger was violently dragged off a United flight last month.

Under the proposed measure, all city employees, including aviation police would be barred from boarding.

However, they could board if it's a criminal matter or a medical emergency.

"Our employees should not be assisting airport--strike that--airline employees in doing their dirty work." says Johnny Jimmerson, Chicago aviation police.

The three aviation officers and a supervisor have been suspended following the incident.
