CHAIRMAN OF NEW YORK STATE SENATE HOMELAND SECURITY COMMITTEE ISSUES STATEMENT ON TSA RULE CHANGE

 

    Brewster, N.Y. – (3/07/13) – “The sad reality is that 19 thugs with box cutters killed 3000 innocent souls. While I understand the need to pinpoint security efforts, if the TSA wants to reorganize their policies in a way that will streamline procedures and enhance efficiency maybe they can cease patting down 6 year olds and 90 year old grandmothers in wheelchairs, and instead use Israel based security procedures to surgically zero in on probable threats. It is absolutely absurd that the TSA would allow passengers to carry similarly dangerous items, as those used on 9-11. Simply stated, this rule change will put flight attendants, pilots and innocent Americans in immediate danger, and is as asinine a decision as can be made,” said Senator Greg Ball (R,C,I – Patterson) Chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans, Homeland Security, and Military Affairs.
