Airport Security Staffing Could Prove Vexing for Travelers


Airport security lines could be getting longer, and the Transportation Security Administration officers who keep them moving aren’t happy about the situation, advises In Homeland Security.

“Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officials expect a 4.5 percent increase in airline passengers in fiscal 2020 but have requested only a 2.5 percent staffing increase over the current 46,000 officers.

“’We are responsible for living within our top-line budget,’ which is set by Trump administration higher-ups, Patricia Cogswell, TSA’s acting deputy administrator, said in an interview.”

Looks like one of those nitty-gritty aspects of government that could soon be causing upset at airports.
