WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, today led an oversight hearing with Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Administrator Peter Neffenger, during which the committee examined what steps are being taken to secure the nation’s surface and air transportation modes in the wake of the deadly terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium.
Last week during a visit to the Sioux Falls Regional Airport, Thune met with representatives from the airport, Federal Bureau of Investigation, TSA, Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office, and Sioux Falls Police Department to discuss measures that are being implemented locally.
