New proposed legislation hopes to give airlines more flexibility when advertising ticket prices.

On Thursday, Representative Bill Shuster introduced the Transparent Airfares Act of 2014.

Regulatators had changed the rules two years ago hoping to make it more transparent.

But members of Congress say the opposite happened…

Passengers couldn't tell the difference between the full ticket price and what percentage was government taxes.

The airline industry supports the new legislation.
