WASHINGTON (AP) - A congressional official says Boeing will propose 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.
   
The official said Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Ray Conner is expected to present the plan to Michael Huerta, head of the Federal Aviation Administration, in a meeting later this week. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the plan.
   
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.
