Changes coming to no-fly list

WASHINGTON D.C. - The Obama administration says it plans to change the way travelers can ask to be removed from its no-fly list of suspected terrorists.

The move comes after a federal judge in Portland, Oregon ruled that there was no meaningful way to challenge the air travel ban, which the judge says is unconstitutional.

The Justice Department says the U.S. will make changes during the next six months, but it's offered few details.

As of late last summer there were about 48,000 people on the list.
