Transportation Security Subcommittee to Markup TSA Authorization Bill

The House Homeland Security Committee announced yesterday that its Transportation Security Subcommittee will be holding a markup hearing this tomorrow on an as yet unpublished ‘TSA Authorization Act’. Since this is an ‘open markup’ it is expected that this will be a multiple day hearing.

Ranking Member Jackson-Lee has introduced a bill (HR 1900) that would specifically authorize ground transportation security measures for TSA. Provisions from that bill might be included in the bill being marked up in this hearing or may be added as amendments to Chairman Rogers’ (R,AL) bill.
