The U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security
recently advanced bipartisan legislation
that would help reduce the spread of COVID-19
among airline passengers and Transportation
Security Administration (TSA) employees.
The Security Screening During COVID-19
Act would direct the TSA administrator to coordinate
with the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention and the Department of Health
and Human Services to develop a plan, identifying
best practices among air carriers, airports,
and foreign governments regarding COVID-19.
The administrator would identify specific operational
changes that TSA can make to further
reduce the virus’ spread at checkpoints.
The bill also authorizes the TSA to consult
with its employees and stakeholders while developing
the plan and directs the comptroller
general to a report on the plan a year after it
is issued and implementation has begun said
