The Senate has passed legislation that includes a provision allowing airports to replace TSA screeners with private security, opening the door for the widely loathed federal agency to be marginalized from aviation security altogether.

“Security companies would have an easier time winning contracts to operate airport checkpoints,” reports Businessweek.
