One provision in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) consolidation legislation would extend the deadline for airports to install bomb detection equipment by one year to December 31, 2003. During debate on the DHS consolidation plan, Congressman Oberstar (D-MN) proposed an amendment which would have eliminated the deadline extension; had Oberstar's proposal passed, airports would be required to have bomb detection equipment in place by December 31, 2002. Progressives supported the Oberstar amendment because, in their view, bomb detection equipment should be installed as soon as possible to insure the safety of airline passengers. The Oberstar measure was defeated on by a 211-217 vote margin.
