H.R. 876: To reform programs of the Transportation Security Administration, and for other purposes.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 876 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

This bill requires the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to study and implement better screening for TSA's 900,000 employees following attempts by TSA employees to detonate a bomb at an airport, gun and drug smuggling, and employees who became involved in terrorist activities overseas. The new screening would include creating a national database of employees who have had either their airport or aircraft operator-issued badge revoked for failure to comply with aviation security requirements.
