Lawmakers Seek Answers on Newark Security Gaps

"We were troubled that staff at Newark feel that there is more interest in hunting down the leaker than addressing an abysmally high failure rate in the screener testing," the lawmakers wrote.


Pascrell, during a phone interview, said he is hopeful that Hatfield, who took over after Arroyo's ouster, can make the changes necessary to fix Newark Liberty's problems.

"He's got a hell of a cleanup to do here, and he better do it," said Pascrell. "We're going to use the power of oversight."
