(Washington, DC) — Transportation Security Administration officials are considering no more passenger screenings at more than 150 small- and medium-sized U.S. airports. CNN obtained documents saying the move to cut screenings at airports where planes have 60 or fewer seats would save 115-million-dollars annually. That money then could be used to improve security at larger airports. The documents say that any passengers arriving from a smaller airport would have to go through the regular TSA screening when it makes a connection at a larger airport. The group studying the proposal said it would impact about ten-thousand passengers a day. That represents a half percent of the total number of people flying in the United States on any given day.
