Spare Change At The TSA

November 30, 2013 in Daily Bulletin

There’s a good chance our American readers have travelled over Thanksgiving and lost some change during TSA’s screening process – or so writes Justin Bachman:

  • In the last fiscal year travelers left half a million dollars in loose change at security screening checkpoints.
  • Miami did the best with $39,613 in spare change. Guam on the other hand only made $1.70.
  • The money that is collected this way is currently spent on airport security projects.
  • However there is legislation in place to channel the money to military welfare organizations.

Check out how much money is lost in other airports as well as details of the legislation that would channel the funds elsewhere here.
