Progress in Implementing Provisions of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act
Alexis M. Stefani, Assistant Inspector General for Auditing, testified before the House Transportation Aviation Subcommittee regarding TSA’s progress in implementing the Aviation and Transportation Security Act. Key points in her testimony were:
- TSA could not be working any faster or harder than it already is.
- The deadline to have a federalized screener workforce in place is less than 4 months away and the deadline to begin screening all checked baggage is just over 5 months away. TSA has made progress in implementing the act’s requirements.
We will have good idea by end of the summer whether the deadlines can be met.
