(Sacramento Bee) Sacramento International Airport wants to dump its federal security screeners and replace them with private contractors.

Airport officials say they believe non-government screeners would do as good a job of ensuring airline safety, would be friendlier and potentially could get fliers through security faster.

“Anything we can do to enhance customer service, we want to try it,” said spokeswoman Linda Cutler.
