The US Department of Homeland Security has established security guidelines for general aviation airports that will affect all airports including Columbia and Pine Mountain Airports. Homeland Security known as the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is developing guidelines in cooperation with the general aviation communities that are different than the ones imposed at airports that have commercial passenger flights.
The House’s version of the bill contained language stating that local airports were not in violation of FAA grant programs if they currently had an active Residential Through The Fence agreement or would sign one in the future.
The Senate version of the bill does not contain similar language, making the through-the-fence policy one of the many negotiating points between House and Senate conferees.

The County has for some time been pursuing a resolution to the RTTF issues at Pine Mountain Lake Airport.
After many discussions with airport users I have realized that there exists a certain level of discouragement due to the fact that very little news has come out of this office pertaining to the RTTF issue.
