TSA’s Progress in Implementing the Aviation and Transportation Security Act
We issued our review of TSA’s progress in implementing provisions of Section 106 and 138 of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, as requested by Representative James L. Oberstar, Ranking Minority Member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Section 106 requires all individuals, goods, property, vehicles, and other equipment to be screened before entering a secure area of an airport in the U.S. Section 138 requires an employment investigation, including a criminal-history check, on anyone who has regular escorted access to aircraft or a secure area of an airport. We found TSA is taking steps to implement the two sections. This report contains sensitive security information and will not be publicly released.
