A New York lawmaker wants to end major flight delays by closing a corporate jet loophole to pay for furloughed air traffic controllers.Senator Kirsten Gillibrand says closing the loophole is just common sense.

Gillibrand says it will save billions of dollars that can be invested to keep control towers up and running, keep flights on time and keep the economy on the move.

More than 1.200 flight delays on Monday were attributed to furloughed air traffic controllers.
