Several airports in the US have been forced to closed terminals due to a shortage of security workers following the partial shutdown of the US Federal Government. Airports affected include Miami International Airport in Florida and George Bush International Airport in Houston, Texas. Screeners employed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are working without pay and many have called in sick or resigned, forcing George Bush International Airport to close its terminal B.
