Hudson to Hold Subcommittee Hearing Tomorrow Examining TSA’s Efforts to Advance Risk Based Security

Washington, D.C. – The Subcommittee on Transportation Security, chaired by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), will hold a hearing entitled Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA’s) Efforts to Advance Risk-Based Security” tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. in 311 Cannon House Office Building.

Subcommittee Chairman Hudson on the hearing: “The Subcommittee's hearing with TSA Administrator Pistole will focus on efforts to advance risk-based security while cutting unnecessary spending.  In my view, if TSA implements risk-based security in a responsible way, it could be a win-win for our security and our economy.  First, it takes the focus off lower risk individuals, like the elderly and disabled children who already face enough obstacles.  Second, it gives TSA the opportunity to evolve its procedures and reduce its long-term operational costs.  Members will have the opportunity to discuss risk-based initiatives such as Pre-Check, recent changes to the Prohibited Items List, and other ongoing efforts to make TSA more effective and efficient."

THURSDAY, March 14 at 3:00 p.m.
