Committee On Oversight & Government Reform


March 23, 2012


Have a TSA story or question you’d like to ask TSA leadership?


 Go to tell us your story.

Washington, DC – Transportation Security Administration (TSA) program challenges and failures will be the focus of a joint hearing of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure on Monday.

This hearing will be led by Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Transportation Committee Chairman John L. Mica (R-FL).             Mica is also a senior member of the Oversight Committee.  Both committees have focused on the need for significant TSA reform in order to improve transportation security and eliminate the waste of taxpayers’ money on ineffective or poorly implemented programs.

The focus of Monday’s hearing will include Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT), the Screening of Passengers by Observation Techniques (SPOT) program, the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) program, the Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) program, and other security initiatives administered by the TSA.  The Committees plan to continue conducting joint oversight hearings examining additional TSA issues in the coming months.

Members will solicit questions from the public via their Facebook pages to ask TSA officials at the hearing.
