    Besides dumping the costs of the TSA-mandated exit monitors on local authorities, it appears they are also dramatically reducing their contribution for law-enforcement coverage, despite requiring the presence of at least one law enforcement officer per checkpoint. This example shows a 70% reduction in that contribution for Watertown International Airport near Dexter, New York.

    The county currently receives about $29,000 from the TSA for security operations at the airport — a paltry sum compared with the more than $97,000 it was receiving just two years ago.
