Lawmakers Strike Airport Security Deal

Quote:

Under the accord, within a year the nation's airports would be placed under one security system supervised by the Department of Transportation, with the baggage screeners that are now hired by private companies working for the government.

But after another two years, airports would be able to ``opt out'' of the system and go back to letting private companies do the baggage screening if they wished.

In the meantime, five pilot projects will also be allowed to demonstrate the public-private partnership in screening that many congressional Republicans wanted -- instead of an expanded federal workforce of screeners favored by many Democrats.
