TSA Responds to Congressional Inquiry on Foreign Repair Station Ban

The Transportation Security Agency (TSA) is diligently working toward completion of the long-awaited repair station security rule, according to the agency’s response to correspondence from House Transportation Security Subcommittee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) and Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.).

In late March, the lawmakers met with senior TSA officials and delivered a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano expressing their frustration that a rulemaking mandated in 2003 was still pending. Reps. Rogers and Walberg also requested regular Subcommittee briefings on the agency’s progress and that TSA finalize the regulation before the end of the year.

ARSA has been working closely with lawmakers and the TSA to finalize new repair station security rules so that the FAA can once again issue new foreign repair station certificates. Industry has been penalized too long for government inaction. To encourage your representatives to support this important effort visit ARSAaction.org.
