Rep. Thompson says that he understands the situation, but something has to be done.
“We are working in a time where budgets are constrained, I realize additional funds will be needed to provide more staffing at airports,” says Thompson, “However, I believe a thorough look must be taken at the current staffing allocation model and standard operating procedures to ascertain if any room exists where efficiencies can be achieved.”
