Our airport, Glacier International Airport, has applied for the Screening Partnership Program, also known as SPP or Opt-Out. Studies have shown that the SPP program costs the taxpayers more money than keeping the Federal TSO’s. A private company is in business to make profits and this cannot be done at the expense of the traveling public. The de-federalization of Homeland Security is not a wise use of our tax payers’ money and has a demoralizing effect on the very qualified Federal employees.
