Maintenance costs and all of that It's the logistics of the bill Like removing funding if they can’t do that If they can’t, we take away a whole lot of money The tsa uses all of their money If we take away 100 million, it has a much larger impact of simply giving 100 million. Look at the cost benefit analysis. If we affirm this, and the likely outcome happens, terrorist attacks become more likely (address argument). If we negate, it stays as it is. But, we have plenty of time to pass another bill, w/o these stipulations.

Annual budget of tsa is $7.6 billion (2015), an extra 100 million dollars isn’t going to change much I’m not opposed to increasing funding, I’m opposed to increasing funding with punishments when the goals that we set are inevitably not going to be met we use all but 50 mil https://travelersunited.org/commentary/do-tsas-impressive-2015-statistics-indicate-success-or- failure/ In 2015, TSA used its own security personnel to test its airport checkpoints, where passengers attempted to smuggle prohibited weapons and explosives through security. Of the 70 tests, TSA Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) failed to detect the weapons and explosives 67 times, a 95.7 percent failure rate. That’s certainly an impressive failure on TSA’s part.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
