TSA moves to Dept. of Homeland Security

Posted on April 1, 2003

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) moved from the U.S. Department of Transportation to the Department of Homeland Security. The TSA was created in November 2001 when President Bush signed the Aviation and Transportation Security Act in response to the Sept. 11 attacks. The agency met 36 mandates set down by Congress, including $15 million in over-the-road bus security grants, while developing a functioning agency of about 64,000 employees. The TSA is one of 22 federal agencies that were transferred to Homeland Security, a new Cabinet-level department led by Secretary Tom Ridge.
