Ethan Explains TSA Government Spending 5/6/16

The Transportation Security Administration, better known as the TSA, is claiming they need yet more money or you’re going to suffer at the airport waiting in lines this summer. Do the government spending problems reflect your personal financial situation?

From The Hill:

“As we look ahead to the surge in summer travel, we will continue to consider a number of other steps to ensure enhanced aviation security while also maximizing efficiency at check points,” Johnson said in a statement.

But he emphasized that some of these steps are going to require money. 
He called on Congress to reallocate fiscal 2016 funding to pay for overtime for security officers and fulfill other “critical short-term needs.” 

“These funds will allow TSA to expand the work hours of screening officers in peak periods at high volume airports,” Johnson said.

Congress may be reluctant to pump more money into the agency, which has come under fire for high-profile security lapses and been plagued by reports of mismanagement at the senior level.

But with constituents spending as long as three hours in security lines and 600 passengersmissing flights in one day, lawmakers — who fly regularly themselves — may be nudged to address the issue in some capacity.
