US Senators introduce bill to increase funding for aviation security

    US Senator Edward Markey and Richard Blumenthal introduced (05-Sep-2018) the “Funding for Aviation Screeners and Threat Elimination Restoration (FASTER) Act”, which aims to ensure revenues collected from aviation security fees are used to help finance the costs of aviation security, including screening equipment, personnel and research and development. Mr Blumenthal stated: “This bill will prevent these funds from being raided for other uses – increasing TSA‘s ability to keep the traveling public safe and reducing congestion at our nation’s airports”.
