He said the planes should be grounded until there is an investigation of the causes of the recent crashes and the plane's airworthiness is ensured. Two Democrats, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California and Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, have called on the FAA to take action on the Boeing /zigman2/quotes/208579720/composite BA -0.40% planes.
