WASHINGTON, DC – US Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement on the US Senate’s confirmation of Peter Neffenger to lead the Transportation Security Administration (TSA):
“The travel community is relieved and encouraged that TSA will now have long-term leadership in place, especially someone as confidence-inspiring as Mr. Neffenger. His qualifications for the position are virtually without peer, and during his confirmation hearings he distinguished himself with his adroit answers to many tough questions about this difficult period for the agency.
“Travel is crucial to both America’s economy and way of life, but this country’s ability to travel begins and ends with security. No one was ever under the illusion that TSA’s job was going to be easy, but under Mr. Neffenger’s leadership I expect that the agency will emerge from its recent challenges every bit as capable and effective as we need it to be.
“My organization and our industry look forward to working with Mr. Neffenger and TSA to continue advancing innovative policies that both enhance security and facilitate a better travel experience for all.”
