Miami airport to reopen terminal amid government shutdown

Miami International Airport officials say they will reopen a terminal Monday that was closed for parts of the weekend because of a staff shortage caused by the partial government shutdown

Chin says the checkpoint will be fully staffed Monday.

Many TSA employees have called out sick to protest having to work but not being paid amid the shutdown.

A TSA security checkpoint was closed Sunday afternoon in Terminal B at Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport and was to stay that way the rest of the day. Officials ascribed the closure to staffing issues associated with the partial shutdown.
