Description
Government Reference Publication

Excerpt
Introduction: The Aviation and Transportation Security Act (P.L. 107-71) was signed into law by the President on November 19, 2001. It established the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) within the Department of Transportation (DOT), to be led by the Under Secretary of Transportation for Security. The Homeland Security Act of 2002 (P.L. 107-296), signed by the President on November 25, 2002, incorporated TSA as a part of the new Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The Act transferred to DHS all of the functions of TSA, including the functions of the Secretary of Transportation and the Under Secretary relating to TSA. Those functions were transferred to the Secretary of Homeland Security, and many of them were delegated to the Under Secretary of Transportation for Security, now known as the Administrator of the TSA. Section 109(a) of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) authorizes TSA to take certain actions in eight specific areas listed in the Act to enhance transportation security. The section also requires submission of a progress report to Congress six months after the date of enactment of the Act describing the status of the actions listed in the section, including any legislative recommendations that the TSA may have for enhancing transportation security. This report must be submitted annually until all specified actions are evaluated and implemented, or until a decision is made not to pursue further action.
