ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the U.S. has told the House Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection that air cargo bound for the U.S. would not be screened. In response, several Democratic lawmakers fired off a letter to TSA Administrator Kip Hawley stating TSA's interpretation of the law was flat wrong. However, securing cargo destined for the U.S. is the responsibility of the originating country.
