TSA wants to conduct on-site transportation related security assessments

Government Security News

Mon, 2012-12-03 04:47 PM

TSA is seeking permission from the Office of Management and Budget to conduct security-related assessments during site visits to approximately 750 owners and operators of highway transportation assets (such as long-haul trucks) as well as 140 public transportation agencies.

Under an initiative known as the Highway Baseline Assessment for Security Enhancement (BASE) program, TSA will seek information that can help it develop policies and programs. “TSA’s Highway BASE program seeks to establish the current state of security gaps and implemented countermeasures throughout the highway mode of transportation by posing questions to major transportation asset owners and operators,” says a TSA notice published in the Federal Register on Nov. 30.

Similarly, TSA wants to conduct on-site assessments with public agencies that run buses, rail transit, long-distance rail and less common types of service, such as cable cars, inclined planes, funiculars and automated guide way systems.

The public has until Dec. 31 to submit comments about this TSA information-gathering request. Further information is available from Susan Perkins, of TSA, at 571-227-3398 or

    I am a driver with 5 million miles. I for one think that the TSA needs to stay out of my truck, my job, and my life. I do not need these bafoons delaing my progress, inspecting me more than I already am, or rummaging around inside my home on the road.

    The government already regulates this industry to the point where one can no longer make a decent living, and for this privailage the government subjects me to endless inspections, and searches of my property and personal effects.

    The TSA will just be repeating the work of other agencies and the only thing they actually accomplish is to raise the cost of transportation by adding yet more intrusive regulations that only guarantee that they have justified their exsistence.

    What ever happened to an educated American public that actually asked what their government was doing, and why?

    I can only hope that I retire before they get their paws in the trucking industry. They effectively screwed up everything they have touched so far. So I belive they will screw up Americas only remaining strong industry if they are allowed to step their jack boots ino it.

    The TSA has yet to arrest any of the 9-11 perps, HAARP perps, Deepwater Horizon perps, Wall Street perps, The Fed perps, Skull and Bones perps, freemason perps, etc. They are nothing but molesters with a couple billion rounds of killer hollow-point ammunition to drill your ass if you do not flirt back.
