Gov't: Budget cuts already causing airport delays

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says U.S. airports, including Los Angeles International and O'Hare International, are already experiencing delays as a result of automatic federal spending cuts.

Napolitano said Monday that delays will become worse. The Transportation Security Administration and Customs and Border Protection agencies, which are part of the Homeland Security Department, are sending furlough notices and have cut overtime for employees.

Napolitano said she expects a cascading effect during the week, with wait times expected to double in worst cases.
