That's a lot of negatives on this one, and nobody saying why they don't approve. I think this is pretty reasonable spending. The only think I don't like is the addition of fees. Ticket prices are already high enough.

I am saying no to this bill. My reason is. We the people have no more money to give. Congress has spent on everything imaginable till they have spent this country into the poorhouse. Had congress had the foresight to see that spending on projects that only benefit a few would untimetly effect funding of projects that benefit ALL PEOPLE my vote on this matter may have been different. Until our representitives get the budget and their spending habits under control we have to just STOP SPENDING.

Everytime the TSA farts Congress is wiping it's ass with taxpayer dollars. I can't see where pouring money into redundant security measures is cost effective.

Certainly it doesn't provide for more security, all this rule as does,as the entire Transpotation rules do is restrict more and more american citizens' from holding transportation related jobs.

Congress better wise up before we the people vote all of them outta office, and start over.
