Ten years after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, federalized aviation security has proven costly, reactive, and an intrusive failure. Restoring security responsibility to airports and airlines would provide numerous benefits to the traveling public without compromising security. Join us for a discussion of why Congress should privatize airport security and abolish the Transportation Security Administration.
