Statement by Secretary Johnson Regarding TSA

This past holiday weekend, as increased numbers of Americans traveled by domestic commercial air, the men and women of TSA worked hard to keep passengers moving through security checkpoints, and keep them safe.  Particularly in the current global threat environment, we are not compromising or short-cutting aviation security, while meeting increased travel volume.

Statement By Secretary Johnson On Additional Congressional Support For Airport Security

Today I thank Congress for approving our $28 million reprogramming request for TSA, which will allow us to more effectively and efficiently screen the increased number of travelers at U.S. airports. I would especially like to thank Chairman John Hoeven, Ranking Member Jeanne Shaheen, Chairman John Carter, and Ranking Member Lucille Roybal-Allard for their efforts to ensure the approval of this request.

Statement By Secretary Johnson On Latest Actions To Address Wait Times At Airports

The TSA Administrator and I both appreciate the recent support we have received from Congress to aggressively address increased air travel and reduce wait times at TSA screening points in U.S. airports.  In the face of increased air travel volume, we will not compromise aviation security.  We are quickly and aggressively surging resources to keep travelers moving through airports, and to keep them safe.
