The Transportation Security Administration has joined the State Department, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Broadcasting Board of Governors in a growing list of agencies deciding to continue its hiring freeze, Government Executive reports.
TSA’s acting Deputy Administrator Gary Rasicot said in a memo to employees last week that all non-front line positions will continue to be frozen, according to the article.
The report notes that Rasicot said the freeze, which will not include airport screener positions, will remain until further details are available for the fiscal year 2018 budget.
