TSA Makes Over $400K From Rushing Passengers
Don’t forget to collect your items once through airport security checkpoints. The TSA is cashing in on all those coins that passengers have left behind, and they have over $400,000 to show for it.
FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady reports:
It’s the airport security equivalent of digging through the couch cushions: (change jingling) loose change, left behind at security checkpoints.
The TSA out with a breakdown of unclaimed money, which Congress gave it approval to spend on airport security.
For the fiscal year 2010 alone, more than $409,000. The biggest chunk of change coming from New York’s JFK Airport: nearly $47,000. The next highest: LAX , topping $19,000.
The TSA says it does make every effort to reunite passengers with items left at checkpoints.
