TSA blocks private airport screeners – Daily Caller

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

The Daily Caller spoke with three Montana airports – Glacier Park International Airport, Missoula International Airport and Bert Mooney Airport – which all said they were encouraged by TSA to apply for the privatization program – known as the Screening Partnership Program (SPP). All three airports’ applications were denied in January.

One airport director even said TSA agents actively protested the airport’s attempt to privatize, going so far as to stand at gates in uniform and tell passengers they would be less safe if the airport joined the SPP.
