The Glacier Park International Airport Authority Board is
sticking by its decision to privatize its airport security force,
but took time on Tuesday to answer questions from local federal
security workers who are worried about job security.
The board decided more than a year ago to apply to the
Transportation Security Administration Screening Partnership
Program to use a private contractor for security screening of air
passengers and baggage, but waited until July this year to submit
the application. The application still is being processed.
