From the article:

But Senate Commerce Chairman Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, told department officials it was unlikely they would receive more money, so "I would urge a review of your situation as to how to get the job done better with the money that's there now."

It is good that the Senate feels this way. Of course, I have to wonder how it let those two dummies, Senator Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, and Senator Byron Dorgan, D-North Dakota, get away with banning Bic lighters.

Did it really feel that by hiring extra screeners to make certain that nobody is going to flick his Bic it will really "get the job done better with the money that's there now"?
