Airports Can Go Private Soon

The Bush administration told Congress yesterday that airports that want to replace government security screeners with privately employed workers may do so by early next summer. Rep. John Mica agrees and has suggested that its time to rethink the TSA. This is good news to the world's busiest airport, Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International. A report out Friday says the airport is considering a return to private security screeners. Twice this year, long lines have extended out the doors at the airport sparking much criticism. Again, Reason's own Bob Poole has a great pool of research on the issue here.
