TSA pick renews call to make the job a 10-year term
"I believe a a 10-year term for the administrator of TSA will help provide the agency with the qualified, long-term and independent leadership it needs at this time and strengthen our nation's security by ensuring stable leadership within the Department of Homeland Security," Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) said in a letter sent Tuesday to President Obama (see the full letter posted below).
Wolf first called for the 10-year TSA term in January, suggesting Congress could replicate the FBI director's decade-long term that overlaps presidential administrations.
Though Wolf's idea has gone nowhere, maybe it's time to consider it seriously as the Senate gets ready to consider Obama's third TSA nominee.
