Pistole, Administrator, Transportation Security Administration, U. Thank you for the opportunity to appear before you today to discuss the President’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 Budget Request for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Department of Homeland Security before the House Committee on Appropriations, Subcommittee on Homeland Security Good morning, Chairman Carter, Ranking Member Price, and distinguished Members of the Subcommittee.Today, TSA provides expedited screening to over 35% of the traveling public.In an effort to expand the TSA Pre✓™ eligible population, TSA began the TSA Pre✓™ Application Program in December of 2013.TSA’s Risk-Based Security (RBS) initiatives in aviation passenger screening have enhanced security, achieved savings, and improved the passenger experience.I ask for your support for the President’s FY 2015 Budget Request for TSA to allow us to continue to expand our RBS programs as we transition to a smaller, more capable agency balancing our investments in people, processes, and technology.
As a result, over 35 million travelers have received TSA Pre✓™ expedited screening and up to 35 percent of passengers experience expedited screening each day.The FY15 Budget request reflects risk analysis and prioritization in areas such as screening operations, FAMS deployment, Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) teams, and Federal Flight Deck Officers (FFDO).TSA's FY 2015 Budget request of .3 billion reflects a total gross discretionary decrease of .4 million, or less than one percent, and 2,034 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) positions from FY 2014.Since its creation, TSA has continuously refined and evolved our security approach by examining the procedures and technologies we use, while ensuring the freedom of movement of people and commerce.TSA’s mission performance and ability to achieve its shared goals and responsibilities of security is enhanced by the expectations for every TSA employee: hard work, professionalism, and integrity.
The TSA Pre✓™ program is a key RBS initiative that allows us to expedite security screening at aviation checkpoints for low-risk passengers. Additionally, TSA uses real-time and intelligence based methods, such as Managed Inclusion and Secure Flight Risk Assessments to identify additional passengers eligible for TSA Pre✓™ screening.
