New majority plans early security push

Aviation officials say that may mean policies that could cripple industry

USATODAY.com: WASHINGTON — "Democrats say they will use their majority in Congress to strengthen domestic security by putting millions of dollars into technology at airports and ports and increasing government oversight.

But they also may push policies that aviation officials say could cripple the industry, such as requiring screening of all cargo before it's put on passenger planes.

House Democrats made domestic security a centerpiece of their campaign this year and vowed to fulfill all the 9/11 Commission's recommendations. “Real security” is the first of six policies Democrats will push when they take control of Congress in January, according to a manifesto they recently published to highlight differences with Republicans."
