SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Congressman Anthony Brindisi, along with Congressman John Katko, are submitting a bill to give TSA workers back pay, and pay moving forward during the government shutdown.
Brindisi made the announcement at the Syracuse airport, before hopping on a plane back to Washington.
Syracuse has about 100 TSA workers.
“This is something that has gone on far too long and we want to make sure we are taking action. And in the meantime to pay these frontline workers, who are keeping us safe every single day. And we want to work together to make sure we are coming up with compromises, so we can get the government running and we can keep everyone safe,” Brindisi said.
They agree that what the president offered this past weekend is a starting point.
