As ordered reported by the House Committee on Homeland Security on March 28, 2012

According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), airline passengers have left behind roughly $400,000 in unclaimed money at airport security checkpoints in each of the past two fiscal years. H.R. 2179 would amend current law to require TSA to transfer such unclaimed funds to a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to military personnel.
