Business News: Amazon Drone Delivery

Posted: Updated:

(CBS)- Amazon is moving forward with it's plans to deliver merchandise using drones.  The company's website now has dozens of postings for jobs asking prospective employees to "come help us make prime air, a reality."  Congress has given the FAA, a date of 2015 to "integrate unmanned aircraft into the national airspace system."

(CNN)-Some states, including Texas, are considering a new tax on drivers.  Instead of basing the tax on how much gasoline you use, it would be based on the number of miles you drive. A proposal by the University of Michigan involves charging drivers based on the amount of miles they drive.  Some of the ideas involve installing GPS tracking and recording devices on drivers' vehicles.  Other pump reporting and collecting methods involve the use of popular smart phones to track mileage.  Other states across the country currently considering similar mileage fee proposals are Minnesota, Florida, Wisconsin, and Nevada.
