U.S. and EU Agree on Sharing of Passenger Data

The U.S. and the EU reached a deal Friday about sharing information about travelers heading from the EU to the U.S., The New York Times reports. The deal is expected to be approved this week. The U.S. will not be able to pull data from European databases; instead, the Europeans will push it to them. The passenger information is to be used for security purposes. A previous agreement on data sharing expired Sept. 30.
