Aviation Security and Transition, Hearing Before the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, United States, Senate, One Hundred Seventh Congress, Second Session, July 25, 2002   [open pdf - 1MB]

The purpose of these hearings is to examine the status of aviation security one year after September 11th. Committee Chairman Ernest F. Hollings made the following remarks in his opening statement, "Welcome, Admiral Loy. Shalom. Peace. I am enthused about your appointment, because it gets us to where we had hoped we were last fall and before Christmas, when we passed the airline security measure. We provided the money and without even a hearing we went forward with the administration's choice. We had an administrator that has not worked out, and in that interim we have had a veritable fist fight in the newspapers, headlines, stories, deadlines, and the purpose as far as this Senator is concerned for the hearing here today is to settle down, stop all the releases, and testify to one thing, what you want out of this Committee." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: George Allen, Barbara Boxer, Conrad Burns, Max Cleland, Byron L. Dorgan, John Ensign, Peter G. Fitzgerald, Ernest F. Hollings, Bailey Hutchison, John Kerry, John McCain, Bill Nelson, Gordon Smith, Olympia J. Snowe, Ted Stevens, Ron Wyden, Craig P. Coy, Edward M. Davidson, Gerald L. Dillingham, Stephen Luckey, Norman Y. Mineta, Michael P. Jackson, James M. Loy, Frank H. Murkowski, Bob Smith, Richard D. Stephens, and Robert T. Francis II.
