Longer Waits At Airports
As if traveling isn’t stressful enough, prepare to wait in longer security lines. The Federal Aviation Administration would be forced to make $600 million in cuts, resulting in reduced hours for 47,000 employees. Changes to TSA agents and air traffic controllers not only pose an inconvenience to travelers, but raise serious safety concerns. Emergency responders would also be affected by sequestration—fewer firefighters, as well as a reduction in necessary equipment that keep families and communities safe.
