ORLANDO, Fla. — A Central Florida lawmaker who helped to write the bill that created the Transportation Security Administration now says it might be time to do away with the government entity at airports.

Rep. John Mica is reminding airports across the country that they have a choice to opt out of using the TSA.

Mica will soon chair the House Transportation Committee. He has sent letters to more than 150 airports, including Orlando International Airport, suggesting that they dump TSA screeners and instead hire private security.

WESH 2 News has learned that the Orlando International Airport will hear a presentation on the matter on Dec. 8.

The federal law that created the TSA gives airports the right to go with private screeners, as long as they continue to follow the Department of Homeland Security’s rules and guidelines.
