Politicians working to get TSA back in Klamath Falls

0211 Klamath TSASalem, Ore. — Oregon’s U.S. senators and representatives are working to get the TSA back in Klamath Falls with a new bill.

Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, along with Representatives Greg Walden and Peter DeFazio introduced the “Treating Small Airports with Fairness Act” on Thursday. The act would bring back TSA service to the Crater Lake-Klamath Regional Airport.

The TSA has said it won’t return to the airport, even though an agreement with Pen-Air has been reached to start commercial service again

The airport has been without commercial flights since June, 2014.
