SCom: AviationWASHINGTON, D.C.— The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation will hold a hearing on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. titled, “Transportation Security Administration Oversight: Confronting America’s Transportation Security Challenges.” This hearing will examine the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) efforts to implement new procedures to confront the evolving security threats to America’s transportation systems.

Background:

Despite significant success in fighting global terrorism in the years since September 11th, our Nation continues to face security threats to its transportation network. Although the TSA has made substantial progress in addressing these threats, terrorists continually adapt their tactics to account for new security measures. To effectively counter evolving threats, the TSA has focused on developing a layered, risk-based approach to security.
