Major US Airport To Evict TSA Screeners
Orlando Sanford International could prompt stampede of other opt-outs

One of Americas busiest airports, Orlando Sanford International, has announced it will opt out of using TSA workers to screen passengers, a move which threatens the highly unpopular federal agencys role in other airports across the nation.
The president of the airport said Tuesday that he would apply again to use private operators to screen passengers, using federal standards and oversight, reports the Miami Herald .
With Sanford International having originally been prevented by the TSA from opting out back in November 2010 when the federal agency froze the ability for airports to use their own private screeners, a law passed by the Senate last month  forces the TSA to reconsider applications.
West Yellowstone Airport in Montana has already replaced its TSA screeners with private security. Bert Mooney Airport, also in Montana, is attempting to do the same.
However, when Texas lawmakers attempted to pass a bill last year that would have outlawed invasive TSA pat downs, the feds threatened to implement a blockade  that would have imposed a de facto no fly zone over the lone star state.
This article is a lie. Orlando Sanford airport is not one of the busiest in the nation. Orlando International is. Orlando Sanford is KSFB. International is KMCO. Big difference.
