H.R. 3318 would require the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to establish a task force to analyze emerging and potential threats to transportation security. The bill also would require TSA to develop a strategy to mitigate those threats. Finally, H.R. 3318 would require the Government Accountability Office to report on the feasibility of screening airline passengers prior to arriving at airports.
Using information from TSA, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 3318 would have no significant effect on the federal budget. According to the agency, most of the activities detailed in the bill are consistent with current agency operations.
