Thompson, Watson Coleman: After NYC Attack TSA Must Focus on Overdue Security Mandates

December 12, 2017 (WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security, and Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Transportation and Protective Security, sent a letter to the Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regarding two surface transportation security mandates that have not been implemented and are long overdue.  Yesterday’s attack in New York City underscores the urgent need for TSA to move forward with these critical mandates with renewed urgency.
