    The House Appropriations Committee released their proposed FY2014 DHS appropriations bill on May 15th.

    More for TSA dogs, watchlists, and contract screeners. How to screen cargo, to be continued...

    "canine detention teams"?

    Are they going to have German shepherds guard the glass cages?

    Maybe that's what the mutt in Atlanta was trained for. :D

    Remember that this is only the House version of the bill... The fun has just started.

    Still 4.8B to high. I say cut it to zero and effectively eliminate this giant wasteful farce of taxpayer money.​

    Does this include monies from our Security Fee when buying airline tickets?

    I want a refund on all those fees as, TSA doesnt know what the word security means let alone grasp the concept.

    Well that is a whole nudder thread. But I agree, TSA has no concept of security.

    Right.
    For an agency that, at great expense, does wrong things and badly, you'd think they'd manage not to affront Congress too. But, no...
    Rep. John Carter, gleeful on their cuts:

    There is also pending legislation to restrict their purchases of ammunition. The walls at DHS are cracking and 2013 could be a watershed year in terms of forcing major changes across the board, including TSA.

    If they're not completely distracted by Benghazi and the IRS, that is.
