20. I am confused by this bill.

Why is the TSA identified as the "finder" of clothes?

Airlines have sent/sold lost passenger items to re-sale stoes for years.

Here: with pics of...clothes.
"the Unclaimed Baggage Center of Scottsboro, Ala. The people who run the center buy unclaimed bags that airlines cannot reunite with customers, and while there are very few of these -- less than 1 percent of all "mishandled" luggage is ever lost for good -- it's been enough to keep the store busy for the past 41 years."

So why is TSA responsible for doing what airlines have done for years?

btw...it has been airline policy to keep lost stuff in a warehouse for 90 days before it can be resold.
