Air carriers now must disclose to the public the number "of checked bags, wheelchairs and motorized scooters they lost, broke or mishandled."

These monthly reports were already being compiled by act of Congress, but Sen. Tammy Duckworth and the Paralyzed Veterans of America pressed to open these to the public.
