The Department of Homeland Security plans to cut funding nationwide for TSA security officers at exit points…an area similar to one used in last week’s shootings at Los Angeles International. If funding is cut, Alexis Higgins with Tulsa International says the exit would most likely be closed. She says that’s the best option if Homeland Security ends funding for manning airport exits. &nbsp;</p> Tue, 05 Nov 2013 17:54:36 +0000 Marshall Stewart 49082 at http://publicradiotulsa.org Funding Cuts Could Close a Tulsa Airport Exit Bird Hits Tulsa Bound Jet http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/bird-hits-tulsa-bound-jet <p><span id="_oneup" style="font-size: 14px;">TULSA, Okla.
