Citing the critical importance of the Transportation Security Administration to the safe, secure and efficient movement of air cargo, the Airforwarder’s Association (AfA) has called on President Obama to nominate a new administrator for the agency. 

The TSA has been without a confirmed administrator since the end of 2014, when John Pistole retired from the agency to take a position in academia.


While praising the work of the agency’s interim leadership and staff, the AfA noted that the TSA’s operations and policies have broad impact on its members.

“Knowing the way things work in Washington, it is important that TSA is under the direction of someone who has been officially endorsed by both the President and the Congress, so the administration needs to move quickly to name a new administrator and for the Senate to expedite the confirmation process,” said Brandon Fried, the AfA’s Executive Director. “It’s important to our industry, and the nation at large to get this underway.”
