Long wait times on airport security lines now have the attention of the Congress.
FOX's Jared Halpern is on Capitol Hill:
Hours long security lines at some of the busiest airports, like Chicago's O'Hare, have shortened, but the fixes TSA administrator Peter Neffenger warns are temporary:
(Neffenger) "I do think that we are at a lower staffing level than we need to be to meet peak demands at peak periods."
Neffenger says nearly 800 new hires will start next month and hundreds of part-time employees are now full-time and working overtime, but he said it's possible the agency will ask Congress for more funding.
The TSA is also renewing efforts to persuade passengers to buy-in to the pre-check program.
