Hudson to Hear from Stakeholders on TSA’s Efforts to Advance Risk-Based Security

Washington, D.C. – The Subcommittee on Transportation Security will hold a hearing entitled “TSA’s Efforts to Advance Risk-Based Security: Stakeholder Perspectives” tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. in 311 Cannon House Office Building.

Subcommittee Chairman Hudson on the hearing: “The Subcommittee's hearing with transportation security stakeholders will focus on efforts to bolster coordination with TSA in order to advance risk-based security for passengers and cargo. Doing so allows for a greater focus on current and emerging threats, while providing stakeholders increased flexibility and ultimately saving taxpayer dollars. I look forward to a discussion with our witnesses on risk-based initiatives such as Pre-Check, Managed Inclusion, and the Air Cargo Advanced Screening Pilot, the important role stakeholders play in implementing risk-based security, and other efforts being made to strengthen our security measures while decreasing unnecessary burdens on travelers and industry.”
