WASHINGTON-  Boeing is proposing to federal regulators a plan to temporarily fix problems with the 787 Dreamliner's batteries that have kept the planes on the ground for more than a month.

Officals say Boeing is expected to present the plan to the head of the Federal Aviation Administration later this week.

The 787 fleet has been grounded since Jan. 16 after a battery caught fire on a plane parked in Boston and a smoking battery led to an emergency landing by another plane in Japan.
