City Council Update 5/25/16

May 25, 2016

Earlier this month, more than 450 American Airlines customers missed flights at O'Hare, due to waiting in security screening lines for over two hours.   Alderman Laurino and three other City Council members introduced a resolution to solve the problem at O'Hare and Midway Airports, requesting that security screening at both airports be performed by a more efficient, flexible, and licensed security firm instead of TSA.  21 airports throughout the country (including San Francisco) have chosen not to use TSA, instead opting for used firms qualified and licensed through the federal screening partnership program.
