U.S. Representative Mike Rogers, Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security and a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, introduced Administrator Pekoske and the conversation.

David Pekoske was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the Transportation Security Administration’s seventh Administrator in August 2017. He leads a workforce of approximately 60,000 employees, including the Federal Air Marshal Service, and is responsible for security operations at nearly 450 airports throughout the United States and shared security for highways, railroads, ports, mass transit systems and pipelines. Under his leadership, TSA is working continuously to raise the security baseline for both aviation and surface transportation through close partnerships and alliances, and a robust homeland security network.
