An airport loose change bill has been passed by the House and it supports military non-profits. On Dec. 5, Newsmax reported that the $500,000 (approx.) of loose change found at airport screening stations in the U.S. each year will go to various military non-profit groups instead of going into coffers held by the TSA if this bill is passed by the Senate.
"Any pocket change we would get from this would go to helping out troops and their families. If this passes, we’ll be thrilled -- not just us, but the troops that we serve will be thrilled," Unites States Organization (USO) spokeswoman Gena Fitzgerald told Bloomberg News (via Newsmax).
This airport loose change bill will ensure that this money goes to good use. While loose change found at airports might seem like a penny here and a penny there, those pennies (and nickles and dimes) really add up -- and that "change" will really help people who need it. Many are hoping that this bill gets passed. Republican Florida Rep. Jeff Miller was a sponsor of the TSA Loose Change Act and he's thrilled that the bill is seeing light.
"[The bill] would ensure that thousands of coins, when bundled together, will be used in support of millions of our nation's warriors," said Miller (via Newsmax).
