(RoyalPatriot.com )- As the Transportation Security Administration struggles to find new workers because of the Democrats’ refusal to lower COVID-19 unemployment benefits, the House of Representatives just passed new legislation requiring the agency to put in place a formal plan to improve its security screening protocols in airports.
How do they expect that to happen when nobody wants to go back to work?
The legislation was passed in a 319-105 vote. The bill requires the TSA to work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the Department of Health and Human Services, to come up with a plan in the next 90 days to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 among passengers at security checkpoints in airports.
If you thought the lines in airports were already long…wait and see what happens after this 90-day period.
The new plan will need to have an “identification of best practices” developed by airlines, air carriers, and foreign governments, to determine what plans might be sensible to implement in the United States.
The bill also says that within one year of the plan being issued the Government Accountability Office will conduct a review to determine how well it has been implemented.
Which interesting, right? If the Government Accountability Office finds after one year and 90 days that the plan has not been successfully implemented, what would be the recourse? By then, the world should have returned to at least some level of normality and the COVID-19 pandemic should have come to an end.
If it was so urgent, shouldn’t this be implemented more quickly?
And should it have been done at some point in the past year?
The TSA says that over 8,300 TSA employees have tested positive for COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and 16 have died.
While we don’t know what the review will turn up, we can possibly expect that fully vaccinated people will be once again required to wear masks at TSA screening points.
Will this pandemic ever end?
