The local TSA director, Jerry Henderson, apparently wimped out & dodged the meeting. Orlando Sentinel: Mica urges Orlando International Airport to dump TSA Nearly 12 years after helping to create the Transportation Security Administration, U.S. Rep. John Mica, urged Orlando International Airport officials Tuesday to dump the agency in favor of private contractors."We probably can do more with less in the private sector and provide better service to the people of Orlando," Mica, R-Winter Park, told an airport committee considering whether to bring in a company that would screen passengers before they board....Mica said his intent was to make the sky safer, not create an agency that he contends is bloated and overly bureaucratic. He predicted contractors would be more efficient in staffing, which he said would shorten the time passengers spending waiting in security lines. Before TSA, the airlines were responsible for ensuring passengers did not bring weapons or contraband on planes. Jerry Henderson, TSA's director in Orlando, was supposed to appear before the airport panel Tuesday, but he canceled.
