TSA to Testify Before Lawmakers
A pair of House committees will question officials from the Transportation Security Administration next week Monday to consider whether TSA is "effective security or security theater," according to an article from The Hill.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee announced the joint hearing today.
According to the article, the hearing will focus on TSA's Advanced Imaging technology body scanners and its passenger behavior program known as Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques (SPOT). The committees will also review TSA's Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) program and other security efforts.
TSA Assistant Administrator for Security Operations Christopher McLaughlin and Assistant Administrator for Intelligence and Analysis Stephen Sadler will be among the witnesses called in to testify at the hearing, the article says.
