OMB Approves TSA Air Cargo Screening Final Rule

On Friday the Office of Management and Budget announced on their website that they had approved the TSA’s final rule on Air Cargo Screening ‘consistent with change’. The current interim final rules have been in effect since November 16th, 2009. This final rule was required by the authorizing Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 and was supposed to have been published by November of last year.

The ‘consistent with change’ approval means that TSA will be required to make some relatively minor changes to the final rule before it can be published in the Federal Register. I would normally expect this to take couple of weeks to complete.
