Orlando Airport Opts Out Of TSA Screening

The Orlando airport is requesting that a private security company take over screening duty from the TSA. Could this be the first domino? What appears to good news must be taken with several very large grains of salt :

1- it will take a year to become effective,

2- TSA rules must still be followed,

3- harassment by the Federal government is certain to follow.

WDBO.com reports –

The backlash continues over those new TSA screening measures, and now one Central Florida airport has decided to go with a private security screening firm. Orlando Sanford International Airport has decided to opt out from TSA screening. “All of our due diligence shows it’s the way to go,” said Larry Dale, the director of the Sanford Airport Authority. “You’re going to get better service at a better price and more accountability and better customer service.” Dale says he will be sending a letter requesting to opt out from TSA screening, and instead the airport will choose one of the five approved private screening companies to take over. Congressman John Mica, who’s expected to lead the powerful Transportation Committee next year, says the TSA is crying out for reform. “I think TSA is overstepping its bounds,” said Mica. Dale says, if all goes as planned, the private security firm could take over in about 12 months. The TSA points out that even if an airport decides to use a private firm for security, the screeners still must follow TSA guidelines. That would include using the full body scanners if they are installed at the airport.
