After lapses, TSA will target screening in overhaul
The New York Times
The new administrator of the beleaguered Transportation Security Administration said the agency would make several changes to security and screening procedures as part of an overhaul to address glaring lapses over the past few months. Peter V. Neffenger, who took over the agency this month, said in an interview that the TSA would retrain thousands of screeners to better detect weapons and other illegal items, scale back a program that allows people who have not signed up for background checks to use expedited security lines and more aggressively police airports’ oversight of security badges.
