Peters Considering Additional Security Measures At Airports

Do you think security should be stepped up at US airports in light of Thursday’s terrorism attack in Flint? Michigan’s junior US Senator Gary Peters is on the Homeland Security Committee and tells Michigan News Network stepping up security at airports is something they’re looking at. Yesterday’s incident happened outside of a security screening area.

“I’m working on some legislation right now to help airports do some infrastructure improvements to allow a security perimeter to be larger than it is right now,” Peters said.

Peters says some changes could include barriers to prevent someone from driving a vehicle into an area and armed guards that are patrolling more frequently than they do now.
