Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has agreed to
commit $3.4 million to Allegheny County Airport Authority for
improvements to be made to the existing checked baggage screening
system in the North Landside Terminal of Pittsburgh International
Airport, Rear Adm. David M. Stone, USN (Ret.), Assistant Secretary
of Homeland Security for TSA, announced today.
"TSA is committed to providing the latest and most efficient
checked baggage screening equipment that supports both stronger
security and improved customer convenience," said Admiral Stone.
"This agreement is a testament to the ongoing partnership among
TSA, Allegheny County Airport Authority and the airlines."
The TSA says it will continue to work with Congress and the
aviation community to deploy permanent baggage screening solutions
for airports. TSA has authorized nearly $1 billion for these
efforts over the next three years.
