    McCAUL. Mr. Speaker, I strongly support H.R. 5462, and I am proud to be an original cosponsor of this important bipartisan legislation. This bill clarifies Congressional intent on the matter of security fees incurred by airline passengers and corrects the Transportation Security Administration's misinterpretation of the Bipartisan Budget Act's minor modifications to these fees.

    TSA should not collect additional passenger security fees beyond what Congress has authorized. H.R. 5462 is common sense, bipartisan legislation to clarify the fee structure that Congress intended and protect the traveling public from millions of dollars in excess charges on their flights.

    I applaud Subcommittee Chairman Hudson, as well as Ranking Member Thompson and Ranking Member Richmond for working together on a bipartisan basis to address this problem. I urge my colleagues to support this bill.
