Talent, Bond want to know why Lambert screeners might be cut
Washington, DC – Missouri's two U.S. Senators want to know why the federal government would get rid of security screeners at Lambert Airport.
The Transportation Security Administration released data last week that show Lambert would lose 93 screeners. That number was part of a list that showed how TSA plans to re-allocate its 45,000 screeners.
Sens. Kit Bond and Jim Talent have now written TSA, asking for details into the decision. They note that traffic is up at Lambert.
Lambert lost 126 screeners in 2003.
