Only 3 U.S. airports screen employees daily before work

By Around the Web

(Clarion Project) At Senate Commerce Committee session, lawmakers heard that only three airports in the United States require their employees to undergo a security check before they begin their work day.

“Atlanta, Miami, Orlando. What about the other 297 airports nationwide?” asked committee co-chair Senator Bill Nelson (D-Florida).

TSA (Transportation Security Administration) head Robert Neffenger answered that while the TSA has “increased the inspection of employees five-fold in the last five months,” more needs to be done.

Neffenger said that all airports were asked to provide a report by the end of the month assessing their vulnerabilies.
