TSA official says no employee furloughs expected
Thursday - 4/18/2013, 3:48pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A senior Transportation Security Administration official says so far, so good for airport travelers wary of the effects of automatic spending cuts that took effect March 1.
TSA Deputy Administrator John Halinski tells a congressional panel he doesn't expect furloughs for his agency, which staffs airport security across the nation. And, he says that longer wait times at check points have not yet materialized as a result of so-called sequestration, as Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned last month.
Halinski says Thursday the budget bill signed recently by President Barack Obama gave the agency additional money for security officers and long wait times have been averted for now.
